The  Food Security Project 2015 report is now available. 

The Food Security Project is an ongoing program of the Edmonton Multicultural Coalition. It is founded on our Community Based Research method, which is a systematic manner of gathering information from ethnocultural communities. This method is guided by the emerging and pressing concerns of these ethnocultural communities, and the findings help bring together respective communities to address these issues in an effecient way. The Edmonton Multicultural Coalition is committed to ensuring that all research is conducted in an ethical manner, and with the approval of the communities. 

In this research project we explored community members' experience with food security. We specifically examined barriers and opportunities to foody security from the perspective of these ethnocultural communities The knowledge and recommendations that have resulted frm this research are explained in the report below. This research was made possible by Edmonton Community Foundation.
