Abstract

This kaupapa Māori research explores, in ethnographic style, how food sustainability can affect hauora (wellbeing). The researchers conclude: "Whānau had developed many strategies to reduce the severity of food insecurity, relying on support from extended whānau and the wider community, but households remained food insecure. Health and other professionals should advocate for social justice and policy solutions that change systems perpetuating social and health inequity."
