1. Food Practices Interview
Purpose: to understand, from an ecological perspective, why people eat what they do.

Your interview should explore foodways through the lens of the Biocultural Framework (Figure 1.1, page 4) such as culture and the physical, economic, social and political environment.

Maximum length, 1000 words, or 4 pages, double spaced (not including title page and reference page). Please include a title page with your name, student number, title, my name, date (not included in the page count).
