Download this publication
The aim of this study is to investigate and document poor people's experiences of food price volatility in Kenya. The study focused on two communities, Mukuru (urban) and Lango Baya (rural) over the course of three years.
In addition to exploring themes relating to wellbeing, coping strategies in the face of relatively high and volatile prices and effects on unpaid care and social relations, the research focused on 'fake foods and fast foods'. We asked about the adequacy and acceptability of the food people are eating in the research communities, focusing specifically on how food habits and customs are being influenced by processed foods and foods perceived to be unsafe.
