The Fed Family Lab is a space for training and collaborative social research for food and health justice. Using mixed methods, and partnerships across disciplines and sectors, we advance the study of family and childhood food insecurity and share evidence for policy change to strengthen the well-being of families.

At the Fed Family Lab, we acknowledge that Acadia University is located on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. Mi’kma’ki is governed by the treaties of Peace and Friendship, first signed by the Mi’kmaq, Wolastoqey, Peskotomuhkatiyik, and the British Crown in 1726. We recognize that we are all treaty people and have responsibilities to each other and this land that sustains us all. We also recognize that African Nova Scotians are a distinct people whose histories, legacies and contributions have enriched that part of Mi’kma’ki known as Nova Scotia for 400+ years.  The Fed Family Lab is committed to working toward social, food and health justice in the spirit of reconciliation and anti-black racism.
