Inquiry into Food Prices and Food Security in Remote Indigenous Communities

1 Jun 2020

The House Standing Committee on Indigenous Affairs ran an inquiry and reported on the issue of food prices and food security in remote Indigenous communities, with a focus upon factors contributing to higher prices and situations where prices are considered unreasonable or potential price gouging.

In crafting this submission, CRANAplus wove together the storytelling of our members and networks who have the lived experience of delivering health care services to remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Our feedback outlined the challenges facing remote communities and made various recommendations to support access to reliable, affordable, quality food.
