Canadian Alliance for Social Connection and Health

The Canadian Alliance for Social Connection and Health (CASCH) undertook a study to understand the role of food traditions and social eating in strengthening BC’s community social services sector, promoting social inclusion, and addressing food insecurity. This project was developed by Iqra Akram and Kiffer Card and the Canadian Alliance for Social Connection and Health, which is an inter-institutional, community-academic alliance of researchers and practitioners committed to addressing loneliness and social isolation through our three pillars: (1) Research and Evaluation; (2) Policy and Program Design; and (3) Knowledge Mobilization.
