Kaitlyn Finner spent the past week in Rigolet, Nunatsiavut sharing the findings of her Masters research with residents of the Labrador community.

From May 2013 to May 2014, community members participated in photo card interviews and four sets of food inventories to assist the research team in characterizing Rigolet’s food system.

Pamphlets describing the project and its findings were shared with all households in the community and an open house was held on February 25th. Despite stormy weather over 50 residents stopped by for a bowl of soup, and to hear more and discuss the project!

The project in numbers:
16 Weeks of food inventories
27 Households
48 Participants
72 Photo cards
1,051 Wild food entries
14,969 Store food items
