September 4, 2019

The University of Guelph has received $1.5M from the Helderleigh Foundation to promote food literacy research through the Guelph Family Health Study. A release from UoGuelph states that the Study consists of a long-term research project involving more than 300 local families with preschool-aged children. “Thanks to this gift, and the support and resources this relationship provides, the Guelph Family Health Study will be able to increase its focus on improving food literacy of families and children in our community,” said Gwen Chapman, Dean of UoGuelph’s College of Social and Applied Human Sciences. UoGuelph adds that the funds will also support three new Helderleigh Foundation Family Food Literacy Graduate Scholarships, worth $22K each. UoGuelph (ON)
