Organization Mission

The Waterloo Food Issues Group (WatFIG) is a community of students and faculty (currently at the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University) working on a variety of food and agriculture issues across disciplines.

Organization Description

Our regular meetings are primarily friendly forums to present research and exchange ideas and announcements with the aim to create opportunities for synergies and linkages between us.

Most of our meetings are for current grad students and faculty members. Periodically we have public forums that are advertised for the community at large to attend. These are announced through WRFoodNews.
