This paper analyzes the landscape of Johannesburg’s Food security civil society organizations (FSCSOs). Results indicate that while they fulfill many important roles, an uneven distribution of resources, institutional instability, and underdevelopment of food security social movements nevertheless weakens their ability to be effective service providers and vehicles of broader social change. It argues that their conceptualization has, so far, been poorly developed; and as a consequence, their transformative potential remains weakly theorized
