dc.description.abstractMany newcomers to Canada struggle with food insecurity and the health impacts of dietary acculturation. Few evaluated programs or resources exist to support newcomers with their food challenges and there is little collaboration between agencies working with newcomers on food issues. This project included the development, implementation and evaluation of a newcomer nutrition program and a newcomer food security network. Qualitative action research methods were used. Data analysis included transcription, thematic analysis, triangulation and member checking. The Growing Roots nutrition program had positive impacts on food and nutrition knowledge specific to the Canadian context as well as impacts on nutrition behaviours. There were also modest impacts on food security. Growing Roots also resulted in enhanced social networks of participants. Members of the Newcomer Food and Nutrition Network, reported greater collaboration, resource-sharing, knowledge-sharing and communication between agencies.en_US
