USask researchers join forces with Sask Health Authority to improve food security


Researchers with the U of S have joined forces with the Saskatchewan Health Authority and CHEP Good Food to study food insecurity and design a future path in the province.

The study will look at various locations in Saskatchewan including urban centres and remote areas among First Nations and Metis communities.

The project is part of the Nourish Anchor Collaborative Cohort, which consists of a network of teams of health care workers and community members to resolve challenges around health, food insecurity, rising rates of diet-related chronic disease and impacts of climate change.

Of particular concern to the Saskatchewan group is the large scale food procurement needs of the health authority.

This has the potential to overwhelm local sustainable practices of hunting, growing and harvesting, if not done in a responsible fashion.

The collaborative projects run from this year to 2023.
