Currently I'm living in Hamilton, Ontario and there is a large population of people that have difficulty obtaining food. The government automatically assumes that the residents of Hamilton are healthy and well-fed because the economy is in decent shape. They never ask the question: "How can someone purchase food, when they don't have the money?" Finding a job nowadays is not the easiest task for most people, especially the lower education working class. Even a minimum wage job will provide someone with enough money to buy plenty of food if the money is managed properly. However, the government is trying to do something to help the homeless, the poor and needy. They have opened a couple of Food Bank centers around the city. This idea is considerably effective but how about lowering the prices of everyday groceries? The city of Hamilton will survive, I'm more worried about the many villages of Africa that are struggling with food security. Maybe we should consider making food donations to those people in an attempt to set up a Food Bank for them. They have great soil for farming and agriculture purposes so why don't we stop growing things for our own benefits in terms of cash cropping. We should help those poor people grow the food necessary for survival rather than worrying about our own profit. Ultimately, I believe that once people realize that this life is more than just money, only then will many world issues such as food security be solved.
