Food Security

Food insecurity is often rooted in poverty and has long-term impacts on the ability of families, communities, and countries to develop. Prolonged undernourishment stunts growth, slows cognitive development, and increases susceptibility to illness. Food security means having, at all times, both physical and economic access to sufficient food to meet dietary needs for a productive and healthy life. A family is food secure when its members do not live in hunger or fear of hunger.
