Food insecurity – the inadequate or insecure access to food due to financial constraints – is a serious public health problem in Canada. It negatively impacts physical, mental, and social health, and costs our healthcare system considerably.

Valerie Tarasuk is a Professor in the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Toronto, and the Principal Investigator on this research program. Val’s research extends to Canadian food policy and population-level dietary assessment, but her primary focus is food insecurity. She has worked to elucidate the scope and nature of this problem in Canada, and examine policy and programmatic responses. Her recent work includes studies on food charity, community programs, and analyses of population survey data to elucidate the health, nutritional, and socio-demographic correlates of household food insecurity in Canada.
