Dumpster diving and food waste in Victoria
Katie Patel, an MA student in the Intercultural and International Communication program, is studying food waste in Victoria. She accompanied a dumpster diver on a “trapline” and learned that many people who can well afford to buy their own food choose to dumpster dive regularly as a lifestyle.
Katie's research was featured on CTV Vancouver Island August 21. Watch the full story here.
In July, Katie was interviewed for CBC radio's On The Island.
