    Our study is concerned with food security in New Brunswick. The three research objectives paint a portrait of the community food security situation according to the different socio-economic, linguistic, and dietary contexts of the province’s communities; describe and evaluate the approaches used by community initiatives promoting food security; and determine measures to be taken with respect to food security.
