Food security

Household food security is the assured access of all people to enough food for an active healthy life. Households are food insecure if they have uncertain or limited access to food through normal channels.

Food insecurity is closely linked to poverty. However, community characteristics, economic assistance policies, and the availability and use of public and private resources also play an important role.
