dc.description.abstract This thesis investigates the food systems of Indigenous undergraduate students’ and experiences of community service providers with Indigenous students and needs of those students relating to their food systems. Data collection included face-to-face semi-structured interviews with eight self-identified Indigenous students. A focus groups was conducted with service providers on- and off-campus, including stakeholders at the University of Guelph, and the community of Guelph. Data was analyzed using thematic analysis. Interview results were organized using the socio-ecological model. Interview participants identified several factors that influenced their food systems including financial capacity, convenience, social influences and campus food environments. Participants also provided recommendations to support their food systems. Focus group participants identified linkages of social support and connectedness to increase student access to food systems. Barriers for students and food systems include lack of awareness and stigma. Suggestions are made to address the needs of Indigenous students and their food systems. en_US
