Hooray! New SSHRC partnership

Equitable food security policy responses now & beyond Covid-19

Thanks to the Partnership Engage Grants program at SSHRC (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council) Food Matters has the privilege and opportunity to work on a community-led research project with principle investigator Kristen Lowitt from Queen’s University’s School of Environmental Studies and partner Dr. Joyce Slater from University of Manitoba’s Department of Food and Human Nutritional Sciences program.

This research partnership will help us to better understand how the food movement in Manitoba can build equitable food security policy responses now and beyond. Food Matters is energized at the chance to work with these two excellent researchers and to learn from their upcoming community conversations and the unique perspectives they’ll bring.

If you have any questions about this work, let us know.
