Food storage needs assessment research report for the Seasoned Spoon
Since the Seasoned Spoon started in February of 2003, it has had a major food storage challenge. It has had very limited and inadequate space to store and preserve food. This lack of storage and preservation methods has impeded the Seasoned Spoon from providing as much locally grown, organic and affordable food as possible - as outlined in the Seasoned Spoon mandate. In locating areas for the Seasoned Spoon to store its food and in understanding and undertaking other food preservation methods, the Seasoned Spoon will further be able to contribute to the underlying goals of a sustainable food system., Section 1: Introduction.

By Morgan McNamee and Yasaman Ahanin, Completed for: Heads Up For Inclusion; Supervising Professor: Hayley Goodchild; Trent Community Research Centre, IDST 4220Y - Assessment of Development Practices, This report is the culminating piece of a four-month evaluation of the Amigos school Program of Heads up for Inclusion. The project had two objectives: 1) Evaluate the success of the Amigos school program since its implementation in 2001 from the perspective of teachers, students and parents/guardians of the participants, and 2) To research and provide the host with best evaluation practices for the program in the future. A literature review of best practices for inclusion of similar programs around North America was completed prior to data collection, while primary data was gathered using semi-structured interviews conducted in February and March 2018. Three interviews were conducted with different stakeholders who are involved with or have been formerly involved with the implementation of the program.
The Experiences of Residents with the City of Peterborough's Rent Supplement Programs Part 2
By Sabrina Bailey, Completed for: City of Peterborough Housing Division; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre, FRSC 4890Y -, The purpose of this research was to determine what feedback the City of Peterborough should gather from recipients of its supplement programs, what survey structure can be implemented on an annual basis, what impact on quality of life financial support has had on tenants, and how the rent supplement has affected the recipients’ living arrangements. The City of Peterborough rent supplement program provides rent subsidies to individuals of low income to reduce the amount that they have to allocate to rent. To accomplish the goals of this study, recipients of rent supplements participated in a survey and focus group. The survey consisted of quantitative and qualitative questions inquiring about the participants’ experiences since receiving the supplement. The focus group expanded on the results from the survey. Grey literature research was conducted to determine what information other municipalities have gathered on residents’ experiences with their rent supplement programs. The data shows that overall the quality of life and living arrangements have improved for individuals receiving a rent supplement. Residents can now afford healthier groceries and social activities. In order to conduct the survey on an annual basis the questions should be quantitative and responses collected on a scale of strongly agree to strongly disagree. This paper is a continuation of a project that is interested in the experiences of residents receiving supplements from the City of Peterborough. Part one of this research focused on geared-to-income programs. This part focuses on flat-rate rent supplements offered by the Housing Resource Centre.
