Hunger and Poverty in South Africa: The Hidden Faces of Food Insecurity

Monday 09 October 2017

This book explores food insecurity as an issue of socioeconomic, political, cultural and environmental inequity and inequality.

Based on extensive original research in Free State Province, South Africa, the book explores how people living in poverty make meaning of their food circumstances within the socio-cultural, political and economic contexts of post-apartheid South Africa, how they view the government’s food security policies and programs and their perceived agency to affect change.
