Spending Trends at Pacific Community Resources Society

Summary

The Pacific Community Resources Society (PCRS) provides hundreds of meals a week at their Broadway Youth Resource Centre (BYRC) and would like to source healthy, local foods. Students working on this project will review BYRC receipts, compile the data, and identify current spending trends and opportunities for local, healthy sourcing. The PCRS office is conveniently located along the millennium skytrain line and students must be able to schedule meetings during office hours (Monday to Friday from 8:30-4:30). This project is especially relevant if you’re majoring in food market analysis, food nutrition and health or food, nutrition and health and/or who to learn more about food environments, business, and budgeting.  For this project, you need to be able to manage large amounts of data to identify patterns. The PCRS provides a wide range social, health, education, employment and life skills services to vulnerable people in the greater Vancouver area, and throughout the project, you’ll have the opportunity to work with and learn from staff at this award winning non-profit society.
