Title: Fresh fruit and vegetable consumption in Guelph
Author: Cairns, Aoi; Hayes, Taylor; O'Hearn, Katherine; Thrasher, Carly
Department: Department of Geography
Abstract: This study addressed the question 'What community design elements affect fruit and vegetable consumption in areas east of Victoria Road in Guelph, Ontario?'. The research focused on examining which factors residents felt affected their access, how these factors affected access, and their perceptions of fresh fruit and vegetable (FFV) access, quality, and variety within their community. Survey participants were asked about community design elements such as public transportation, grocery store and other food retailer access, and use of community or backyard gardens. Participants were also questioned about their regular grocery shopping habits of participants, including choice of grocery store, amount of FFV usually purchased, and how they perceived the quality and variety of FFV offered in their area.
