This research main objective is to understand the existence of hunger and various forms of deterioration of food in our time, by an interpretation that considers the process of proletarianization and critique urbanization of our society. We start a debate already established in previous researches on the work of Josué de Castro and point to the need for overcoming the current readings on hunger and deterioration of food, through a critique of political economy that notes the production of space and everyday life. For this research were established two places within the city of São Paulo, the Bras and Grajaú districts, in order to understand how the spatial differences in access to urban influence our everyday life and consequently our food.
