Urban Food Security

Food insecurity in the city

Too many Australians are going hungry in the City. Recent research from the City of Sydney found that a staggering 8% of residents were food insecure, struggling with the challenge of putting good, healthy, and sustainable food on the table. What is being done—and what more can we do—to help address this problem? What food-related urban planning policy actions are required to promote food justice? This project aims to explore this question, and to anticipate what Sydney’s urban food system will look like in the future.
