Community Geography is a growing subfield that utilizes geographic and other social science techniques to collaboratively with community organizations to assist communities in accomplishing meaningful change. This presentation discusses Community Geography projects focusing on food access, food policy, and health equity in Chicago and beyond, utilizing varying levels of community engagement and geographic technology. Lessons from these projects are applied to a discussion of methods in community-university partnerships.
