Poverty and Diet

Andrea Guimond's presentation focused on the relationship of economic status to diet. In her research Andrea interviewed an expert in the field, Shauna MacKinnon, Assistant Professor in the University of Winnipeg’s Department of Urban and Inner City Studies, using the interview to explore the socio-historical context of this relationship in Canada, illustrating a more complex relationship between income, food choices and government policy.
