Assessing Self Procured and Locally Sourced Food Adaptations in Response to COVID19 in Upstate New York
This project focused on addressing food insecurity in relation to COVID-19. Partnering with Cornell Cooperative Extension and the Department of Environmental Conservation, the student conducted research on household food access, coping responses in regards to COVID-19 and demographical influence on households’ reliance towards self-procured or locally sourced foods. Overall, the student had the goal of supporting food system resilience during and beyond the pandemic by analyzing the causes of ongoing food insecurity.
