Food Security and Food Justice in Canada

Code: FOOD1440

Course description

In this course, students will study the causes and consequences of urban and rural food insecurity across Canada. Expect to struggle with the tensions between short-term stop gaps (food banks, meal programs, charitable services) and long-term food justice solutions (education, equitable incomes, affordability, and accessibility of healthy food). Bring these realities to life by doing research or field work for a food security organization in your region.
