The Campus Food Systems project is building the student food movement across Canada by working with students, staff, faculty, food service providers and community organizations to re-imagine their food systems collaboratively. Independent studies, campus-community consultant projects and on campus action research have been avenues for student engagement, relevant research and food systems change. Lilith Wyatt and Brent Mansfield engaged in a discussion about the opportunities, benefits and challenges of Applied Student Research.
