Food insecurity, or the inability to access and afford nutritious foods, is a significant problem in Fawkner, Australia and has steadily increased since 2011. The goal of this project was to assess the food security needs of the Fawkner community and recommend solutions to help eradicate food insecurity. Our team conducted many interviews and focus groups to get an idea of the primary issues. Although poverty is the root cause of food insecurity, we highlighted several underlying indicators that contribute to food insecurity for certain vulnerable groups, such as immigrants and large families. We then recommended several new programs including a community bus to access less expensive grocers and expanding the Fawkner Community House garden program.
