This report presents data on the household food poverty survey conducted in 2016 in the Ipusukilo and Wusakile neighbourhoods, Kitwe, Zambia. The survey included administering questionnaires to over 800 households in the two areas, and in-depth household interviews with a sample of 15 households. The study was carried out within a larger project: The Governing Food Systems to Alleviate Poverty in Secondary Cities in Africa Project, referred to as the Consuming Urban Poverty (CUP) project. CUP research was carried out in three secondary African cities: Kitwe (Zambia), Epworth (Zimbabwe) and Kisumu (Kenya). This report focuses on the Kitwe food poverty survey.
