Food and Culture: the role of food in social integration


Food is a basic necessity for life, and for many homeless people obtaining, preparing and consuming nutritious food is a constant challenge. At the same time a number of social enterprises established to assist homeless and other at risk youth develop skills, careers and find housing are centred on the provision of food and beverages for others. This project explores how food acts as a means to reengage marginalised groups with family, home, education and careers.
