Abstract

The purpose of the research was to investigate the food security system and how resources of a household determine its access to food and nutrition. The focus was to assess the role of civil society organisations participation in improving household food security in South Africa. The outcomes of the research would contribute to the National Development Agency (NDA)'s food security strategy focused on supporting civil society organisations to enable them to help the food security status of poor households in South Africa. Furthermore, the outcomes would encourage policy debates on food security and identify areas for more research in order to have holistic understanding of household food security in the country.
