I am a Ph.D. Candidate & Arrell Food Institute Scholar at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada.
As a school food and food policy researcher, I examine the social and economic return on investing in school food programs. My work aims to move the dial on health and well-being in Canada while supporting the agri-food sector through a regional food system approach to school food in Canada.
I was honoured to participate in the Government of Canada’s first roundtable on developing a National School Food Program.
