Downloadable ContentDownload PDF
Food insecurity is defined as the lack of access to an adequate quality and quantity of nutritious food. Food insecurity is a “nested issue” under the umbrella of poverty, and stems from inadequate incomes and high living costs. Approximately 14.0% of the New Zealand population is food insecure and needs assistance. In this project, we found a lack of coordinated government policies and discovered a network of non-governmental organizations committed to responding to the growing issue of food insecurity.
