In this article, we look at the people who made Dhaka’s food system resilient enough to avoid catastrophe. We discuss three relevant actor groups – food traders in wholesale markets, street food vendors, and poor consumers – and investigate the roles they play in keeping the city fed, and how they act in the light of crises. Neither these actors nor their contributions to urban food security are acknowledged by the state, nor are they substantially supported. Significant potentials for a resilient urban food system thus remain unpromoted and even blocked.
