Take Action!

Here’s four things you can do to help:


  1. Show your support for these Five Principles by endorsing them online.
    Endorse as an individual or get your organization to endorse.
  2. Sending an email to the government to show your support, using 25 in 5’s automatic email.
    Your email will go to Minister Deb Matthews, Minister of Health, who is responsible for setting up the new Nutritional Supplement program.
    It will also go to Laurel Broten, Minister Responsible for Poverty Reduction, and Dwight Duncan, Minister of Finance.
  3. Sharing your support for these Five Principles with your MPP.
    You can find out who your MPP is by going to http://fyed.elections.on.ca/fyed/en/form_page_en.jsp.
    After finding the name of your riding, click on “information about your MPP”.
  4. Telling your story about the benefit you’ve had from being on Special Diet, by going to http://25in5.ca/without-special-diet/
    Share what it will mean to you if the provincial government’s new Nutritional Supplement program doesn’t meet the Five Principles test.
    If you work with people currently receiving Special Diet, please tell them about this opportunity to tell their story.
