From Hunger To Health

Kreesta Doucette, executive director of Food Matters Manitoba, Shaun Loney, founder and executive director of BUILD Inc. and Warm Up Winnipeg, and David Northcott, Executive Director of Winnipeg Harvest discuss the centrality of food to sustain and enrich our daily lives. So often taken for granted, food not only keeps us alive, it creates communities, economies, divisive politics and diverse cultures. Recorded live at Red River College Culinary School on May 8, 2015 at Spur Winnipeg.


Spur is a national festival of politics, art and ideas and is a catalyst for change in Canada.

Through nationally relevant and locally nuanced discussions, presentations and performances, the festival seeks to spur its participants to action on issues affecting Canadians. Feisty, multi-partisan, forward-looking, and solution-driven, this national railway of ideas will provide Canada with vital new cultural infrastructure for the 21st century.

Founded in 2013, the festival has already grown from three to five Canadian cities, with plans for further expansion across the country. Produced by the Literary Review of Canada in partnership with Diaspora Dialogues, Spur prides itself on its community partnerships, cultural connections and a focus on accessibility and diversity.
