Hope House Food Market Household Survey Results
This project was conducted in collaboration with Hope House, a non-profit organization in Guelph offering services and programs that challenge the stigmas surrounding poverty. One such program is the Food Market, a choice-based pantry serving working and non-working individuals and families. Hope House is required to carry out an annual household survey; in 2022 it was expanded in collaboration with the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute to include open-ended questions about how to better serve those who access the Food Market. This survey found that the Food Market has had several positive impacts on community members' lives. Community members also offered feedback on the strengths and areas of growth for the Food Market.
