This morning, Christine Durant visited QSR to tell us a little bit more about the Poverty Roundtable.
Created through an Ontario Trillium grant, the Roundtable is dedicated to the eradication of poverty in the Quinte area through presentations, engaging those living in (or on the fringes of) poverty, and working with other organizations to examine various aspects of the issue.  It has also expanded the conversation to include individuals from the business community and local government.  Working groups have been initiated to study such issues as housing, income security, and food insecurity.  The Poverty Roundtable hopes to change the way people respond to poverty and improve the lives of the 33% of people deemed poor in the Quinte area.
