"Food banks present Christians with a dilemma. Our biblical imperative is to feed the hungry, yet food banks in Canada, set up on a large scale 30 years ago, have become institutionalized. Tragically, many low-income Canadians, including young children, still go hungry. The question of food banks and their future was one of several issues tackled by a group of about 75 Anglicans of all ages, and from different backgrounds and dioceses, at the Shalom Justice Camp hosted by the diocese of Toronto in Peterborough, Ont., from Aug. 19 to 24 ". Elaine Power, a professor of kinesiology and health studies at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, "says food banks aren't solving the hunger problem. Food banks were created to fill a temporary need during the recession in the 1980s. Now a permanent part of the food system, they provide Canadians with the 'comforting illusion' that the problem of hunger is being addressed. 'Of those who are hungry, 75 per cent never get to the food bank', says Power. MaryAnn Huggett, from St. James in Stratford, Ont., works at a food bank and said that while food banks soften the blow for some, the real challenge is food security for all".
