While there has been some amount of research investigating the link between food insecurity and migration in Latin America and the Caribbean, little is known about the food security status of Venezuelan refugees and asylum seekers in Trinidad and Tobago. The nature of their food insecurity status appears to stem from a range of economic and cultural factors such as lack of employment, poor understanding of English, unfamiliarity with new foods and cooking methods or budgeting skills, and lack of social support. This report on Venezuelan migrants provides an overview of their food security status as an underrepresented group in Trinidad and Tobago, to understand the characteristics of their food insecurity, and contribute to the existing literature on food security among migrants and asylum seekers.
