EKU Food Studies Lab
In Fall 2022, EKU Applied Anthropologist Dr. Amanda Green partnered with EKU Food & Nutrition professor Dr. Abbigail Hickey to create the EKU Food Studies Lab.
The Food Studies Lab operates as a hub for interdisciplinary, community-based participatory research (CBPR) in food insecurity (FI) and food justice in Kentucky. The overarching goal of the lab is to implement strategies that will systematically reduce college student food insecurity through research, collaboration, and advocacy.
Students are welcome to participate in the lab as research assistants and volunteers. Community partners are also welcome to reach out with questions and ideas.
For more information, email Dr. Amanda Green or Dr. Abbigail Hickey.
The first project the Food Studies Lab is coordinating is the EKU Food Security Forum, hosted Friday, March 3, in Powell 216 from 9 am-1 pm.
