Join us for Coffee with Candidates

Federal elections are an incredible opportunity to talk about food. As voters, we have the power to choose a food system where no one goes hungry, where food is healthy, and where the environment is protected.

This election season, The Stop and Davenport-Perth Neighbourhood and Community Health Centre have joined forces as “My Davenport, My Voice” to hold a series of civic engagement events and activities.

Next up, a coffee date with the candidates!

As part of Food Secure Canada’s Eat Think Vote campaign, My Davenport, My Voice is holding a Coffee with Candidates event on Tuesday, October 8th at 1900 Davenport Road.

It’s an informal opportunity to speak directly with prospective Davenport MP candidates and to hear your neighbours’ concerns. Candidates will have a few minutes to address the group, then they’ll circulate among small tables that each focus on an important local issuesuch as poverty, food security, or affordable housing.
