Mary Anne Martin

Postdoctoral Fellow with the Research for Social Change Lab, Trent University

Mary Anne has been engaging in equity-focused, community-based research and advocacy in Peterborough for over 10 years and in her home region of Durham for over 5 years. Since finishing her PhD at Trent's Frost Centre for Canadian Studies and Indigenous Studies in 2018, she has collaborated on research on the social economy of food, the effects of the global pandemic on food access in Peterborough, and initiatives to jointly address the needs of local food consumers and producers. Her research interests include household food insecurity, social divisions of caring labour, the wellbeing of food systems, and the outcomes of community-based food initiatives. With a keen interest in the impact that policies and programs have on people's day-to-day lives, she is excited to now focus on a local review of the Coordinated Access system for addressing homelessness.
