We have compiled a list of research summaries by students, external reputable authors researching local food systems, and Waterloo Public Health. If you know of a report that can be added here, please send it to our website administrators. If you have an idea that needs some local research into a food-related issue, contact Professor Steffanie Scott, who may be able to find a student researcher.

The reports below are organized in terms of their relevance for people working for change within the:


 public sector (state-led programs and policies),


   private sector (private businesses), and the


 ‘plural’ (grassroots / community / non-profit) sector.
