Dismantling stigma

Dismantling stigma: Exploring experiences of and views on food insecurity, social exclusion, and shame among women through participatory action research

2018 – 2020

Funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), Dismantling Stigma will focus on creating more compassionate social environments for women experiencing food insecurity as a means to contribute to social and systems change to address food insecurity.

Working with women with experience of food insecurity in ‘cooking as inquiry’ interviews and transformative learning experiences, the project team aims to:

  1. better understand the nature of exclusionary social relations (interactions) that occur at institutional and interpersonal levels;
  2. make meaning of these relations; and,
  3. translate, and apply this knowledge in new and creative ways to support policies and programs that improve the lives of those who experience food insecurity.
