Professor David Schlosberg, based at The University of Sydney, and Co-Director of the Sydney Environment Institute, is leading a team that has been awarded a $423,500 Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Projects grant to address food insecurity, by assisting vulnerable populations to participate in the development of new food businesses.

With the Council of the City of Sydney; TAFE NSW; and Foodlab Detroit as partners on the project, the goal of the research is to empower individuals and communities and create new economic development opportunities. The social and economic benefits of this project include increased access to food, greater participation in new food enterprises and an improved quality of life for vulnerable people experiencing food insecurity in Australia.
