About Us

Feeding Families in Tough Times (FFiTTis a partnership between academics, families with a lived experience of food insecurity, and key actors in food security including providers of emergency food relief, government agencies, health services, not-for-profit organisations and charities. 

Our Approach

Together we co-design research that aims to achieve our key objectives:

Explore the lived experience of families experiencing food insecurity & create an understanding of the complexities
Understand the root causes of poor diet quality in families experiencing hardship
Examine pathways in and out of food insecurity
Explore interactions with support networks and services
Inform policy and services delivery and co-create sustainable solutions

This research involves 4 key phases

Find out more about each phase here 

We look forward to discussing how we can work together to improve outcomes for food insecure families.

There are many ways to be involved. You could participate in our workshops, interviews or surveys yourself, or you might work with families who may be interested.
