When we think of food, many things come to mind: celebration, family, culture. But when we go deeper, we can see how access to fresh, nourishing food is the main marker of health for communities around the world.
At Ryerson, we explore the nutritional needs of Canadians and international communities at the intersection of two of our research themes: health and well being; and city building and social justice. We look at nutrition in many ways: from seeing how food breaks down in the body, to how food production can impact broader communities by providing not only nourishment but also employment and security.
We hope you enjoy this issue of Innovation and invite you to share in our appetite for research on this important topic.
