One of the art piece in Just Food exhibitIs food ever just food? Food is not only something to be routinely prepared and consumed, it is also essential for human life. Food is an important aspect of celebrating as families and communities and has also been declared a human right. However, the reality is that food is not always justly accessible.

Nineteen visual artists from Canada and around the world add their voices to a growing number of people connecting the right to food with a faith-based response to hunger in an exhibit that opens officially on Thursday, July 21, 4:00-6:00pm at Conrad Grebel University College in Waterloo.

The exhibit is a project of the Mennonite committee on Human Rights, based in Winnipeg and has been showing at various venues in Manitoba. This is the first time that it will be in Ontario. It will be at Conrad Grebel through  the end of September and then move on to Toronto and Hamilton.

We are excited about the possibilities for this new and creative reflection on something we so easily take for granted here in this part of Ontario,

says Rick Cober Bauman, Executive Director for Mennonite Central Committee Ontario.

We hope many people will take the opportunity to stop by and take a look.

The show will be open to the public Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 7:00pm in the main atrium and adjacent hallways at Conrad Grebel University College, 140 Westmount Road North, Waterloo.

Although the official opening is July 21, it will be open to the public starting July 4 in time for the Mennonite Church Canada Assembly at University of Waterloo from July 4-8.

This exhibit will be on display until October 28, 2011.
