Putting Food on The Table
This September, the Centre for Elder Research (CER) wrapped up a one-year National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Applied Research Rapid Response to COVID-19 grant project titled Putting Food on The Table.
Principal Investigator Dr. Leigh Hayden and colleagues from the Centre for Elder Research collaborated with Dr. Sara Cumming from the Sheridan Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Food for Life and Community Development Halton to help support challenges in safely and efficiently meeting the nutritional and health needs of older adults in the Halton Region during the pandemic.
As a result of this project, a toolkit is available to help community groups and members understand and address the food security needs of older adults in their community. To learn more about this project, and to access the toolkit, visit SOURCE: Sheridan’s Institutional Repository.
