This study was undertaken in 2017/2018 by the Human Analysis Environment Laboratory at Western University and the Huron County Health Unit along with the HCFBDC

The intention was to learn how people are meeting their food needs and about the gaps in our response to food insecurity Huron County.

  • Where is food going?
  • To whom and why?
  • How does this compare to the locations of sources?
