The Poverty Task Force builds partnerships with key community stakeholders and networks: working together to eliminate poverty, enhancing our common understanding of poverty issues through solution-based research, knowledge development and information sharing.
The Bruce Grey Poverty Task Force is made up of 6 sector-based Action Groups: Income Security, Food Security, Housing, Transportation, Bridges (Out of Poverty) Action Group and Moving Forward on Health Equity. These sub-groups of the Poverty Task Force dig deeper into the root causes of poverty in our communities and take action. A Community Voices advocacy group of people with lived experience and a Steering Committee also make up the Task Force.
The Food Security Action Group is made up of healthy food promoters, soup kitchens, food banks, agriculturalists, church groups, local food promoters, funders and policy makers.
