  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To systematically review the effects of community level interventions in improving food security in developed countries, both across whole communities and for disadvantaged or at-risk individuals or groups within a community. We also aim to identify features of community food security interventions that enable or impede the effective implementation of these interventions.
