Nurses Union President Takes Up Food Bank Challenge

One of the people who took part in the food bank challenge organised by the Common Front For Social Justice calls it a real eyeopener.

Marilyn Quinn is President of the New Brunswick Nurses Union. She had to make do for three days on what was in a hamper that she got from a food bank.

She tells CHSJ News there was nothing in the food basket she received that would promote wellness and good nutrition although there was fresh milk and eggs.

Quinn became fixated on food and how you could stretch it out. She adds it would become even more complicated if you had children.
