The purpose of this project is to create a snapshot of the food environment in the neighbourhood of Newton in Surrey. This information will be gathered by conducting a survey of the food available in the neighborhood using databases and mapping systems. The data obtained through the analysis will provide a baseline understanding of the food environment in this neighbourhood and will be analysed and used to inform interventions particular to Newton. UBC students will create a map that allows the identification of food deserts and food swamps within Surrey’s Newton neighborhood.
