Urgent Action Needed! The provincial Government is threatening to cancel the Special Diet benefits which gives folks on OW with chronic illnesses a little extra money so they can buy food that caters to healing their illness. We have heard that if enough people shout no they will back down and not cancel it. So please help if you can! – Susy from Ralph Thornton Community Centre.

The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario has created an action alert with specific resources to allow individuals and organizations to respond to the threatened cancellation of the Special Diet Allowance program. These cuts, if they are carried out, will put the most vulnerable of social assistance recipients at even higher risk of poor health outcomes than they already experience.
Urgent Action Alert to Premier McGuinty:
Improve the Special Diet Allowance Program
Instead of Cutting It
