Improving the Accessibility of Sustainably-Produced Foods in Canada 12:00 pm
Improving the Accessibility of Sustainably-Produced Foods in Canada @ Online
Jun 10 @ 12:00 pm
Interest in sustainably-produced foods has grown exponentially in recent decades. Food Secure Canada has conducted a study called, “Sustainable Consumption For All” (April 2018 – March 2019) to better understand the barriers Canadians living on low-incomes face in accessing sustainably-produced food. The project utilized key informant interviews, focus groups with people living on low-income, and a nation-wide survey. Key research findings will be presented, followed by a discussion about the project including exploring future research questions. For this research Food Secure Canada has received funding from Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada’s Contributions Program for Non-profit Consumer and Voluntary Organizations. The views expressed in this research are not necessarily those of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada or the Government of Canada. This webinar is hosted by Food Secure Canada.
