Summary This study used a mixed methods approach, incorporating a desktop review, online survey, and semistructured interview, to investigate how providers of food aid in metropolitan Melbourne are experiencing changes because of an increased demands for services. The findings of this study indicate that though many providers report an increased demand, the complex needs of clients, including issues of housing, intergenerational poverty, and limited education and employment opportunities, make addressing food insecurity a challenge for food aid providers.
