Research

 

In 2016 UnitingCare Hotham Mission is undertaking qualitative and quantitative social research into youth food insecurity in and around North Melbourne, Kensington and Flemington. The objective of the project is to examine the incidence, experiences and understanding of what it means to be living in Melbourne and facing food insecurity for those between the ages of 15-21. The project is the first of its kind to explore the pre- and post-migratory experiences of CALD youth and their families, and promises to offer great insight into how young people deal with the issue of food insecurity.
