Angela Piaskoski

Master's Student

Angela Piaskoski is an MSc student in the Department of Geography, specializing in rural food security. Her research interests and goals have been shaped by an educational and professional background in geography and nutrition, a personal interest in equity and social justice, and rural Northern Ontario roots. Angela’s research involves examining of the role that geography plays in rural household food security. Her research will investigate perceptions of food security among those living in rural, food insecure households and their response to environmental barriers in accessing safe, nutritious, and affordable food. She will also consider the implications of availability, accessibility, and adequacy of food aid in a rural setting, where food banks have developed into an alternative food system. Angela is employing mixed methods in her research by incorporating spatial, quantitative and qualitative approaches.
