Waste

Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story from Grant Baldwin on Vimeo.
I want to thank my fantastic SFU graduate students for another amazing presentation! Today, we focused on food insecurity. Food insecurity is a social determinant of health and “leads to nutritional and dietary deficiencies that are associated with the increased likelihood of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure (Cook, 2008). Food insecurity also gives rise to stress, which has health-threatening effects. People experiencing food insecurity consume fewer nutritional foods compared to those from food-secure households, and they are also more likely to choose foods that are high in fats, sugar, and carbohydrates” OHCC Public Affairs Committee Position Paper (2012). In their presentation, the group featured the Just Eat It trailer above. I’m looking forward to watching it!
