The description offered in this chapter makes visible the manner in which food gathers other thing-, place-, and person-actants to generate specific modes of everyday and hospitality relations. It is in this very performance of such ambivalent forms of agency that food acquires subjectivity and evinces the subjectivities of other things, places and persons. Most food and famine relief policies tend to overlook the critical collaborative work that food performs; such neglect frequently contributes to policy failure. The issues that have been dealt with in this book, and the potential domains of further research delineated, have important implications for debates on new types of food policy initiatives and crises intervention that are more sensitive to the collaborative lives of food. ‘Food security exists when all people at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life’.
