Chopping Away at Hunger: Social Gradients of Food Insecurity in Vancouver, BC

Urban centres such as Vancouver are sites of socio-economic inequality, which creates differential levels of food security. The primary objective of my research is to map social gradients of food insecurity in Metro Vancouver. In the process of creating this map, I will develop a set of food security indicators and generate baseline scores for Metro Vancouver neighbourhoods. Based on my findings, I will formulate recommendations for improving data availability, as well as for strategically developing food assets for locations in need.
