The College of Social and Applied Human Sciences at the University of Guelph has received philanthropic support from the Helderleigh Foundation to create the College's first named Professorship. This aligns with the Foundation's funding to promote food literacy and help raise a healthier generation less prone to chronic disease.
The new Helderleigh Foundation Professorship in Food Literacy will work with the Guelph Family Health Study team to lead development of a productive, collaborative research program that addresses key research gaps related to food literacy.
