Food security is a central issue in the numerous megacities of the global south. However, basic knowledge lacks about how food supply and distribution currently work in these agglomerations. Drawing on recent research in Dhaka, Bangladesh, in this contribution, the supply and distribution channels of rice are outlined. It is clarified how rice is produced, how the goods pass from the fields to the city and how they are distributed within the city. The contribution concludes by discussing the current situation of food insecurity of Dhaka’s poor citizens.
