"The Nutritious Food Basket measures the cost of healthy eating in a month for various family sizes in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties. Registered Dietitians from Hastings Prince Edward Public Health complete food costing at different grocery stores throughout Hastings and Prince Edward counties and compare a family's food budget to other basic living expenses. This infographic increases our awareness that poverty, not the cost of food, is the root cause of food insecurity. It is very difficult for families and individuals living on minimum wage or social assistance to afford nutritious food after paying for basic living expenses."
