The Politics of Food course, open to third and fourth year students across all disciplines, urges students to think about how food is political and critically analyze policies and solutions surrounding Canadian food insecurity.

The community-engaged learning program, implemented in the Politics of Food curriculum at the beginning of the winter 2019 term, is a collaborative effort by the Department of Political Science and the University’s Student Experience Office (SEO). The pilot program allows students to go out into the community to lend a helping hand to one of three local organizations: In From the Cold, The Ottawa Mission or The Ottawa Food Bank.
