Abstract

This qualitative study explores the barriers to food security for vulnerable women from the perspective of charity managers within the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Region. Interviews were conducted with six charity managers. Analysis of charity’s perspectives identified nine themes across two overarching areas: barriers to charity providing food security services (charity accessibility, inter-charity support and charity reliance on donations) and barriers to women attaining food security (income, accommodation type, transport, women’s attitudes and beliefs, stigma/trust and food literacy). Understanding the barriers to women’s food security is essential in addressing the underlying social and economic issues creating food insecurity.
