The main objective of this project is to respond to the challenges faced by Spanish society and its institutions in facing the need to achieve a fairer, healthier and more sustainable diet in a context that is far from being politically and socio-economically stable and where precarization has had repercussions on increasing social inequality and worsening the living conditions of the most vulnerable people. This research aims to contribute to transforming social and economic policies to address aging and demographic change, social exclusion and poverty and, at the same time, to promote healthy and sustainable lifestyles.
The objective of the two sub-projects that make up this research is to discover the problems of food (in)security that, affecting the elderly, urgently need to be resolved.
