Gurneet bring a systems approach in understanding how factors “off the plate” influence what’s “on the plate.” Her passion into social and food justice stems from community experiences from Toronto to Halifax, where she’s lived and studied. As a member of York Region, she brings her passion into research and youth advocacy in her various roles.
As a Food Policy & Research Analyst, she is supporting with the coordination of Municipal level food security research across York Region. Additionally, as the co-founder of the Youth Food Committee, Gurneet is organizing leadership and mentorship training for youth members paving their own trail in the food activism scene in York Region.
Outside of her work roles, Gurneet is always up to a new art project, re-organizing her bedroom and making pizza!
