FOOD FOR HEALTH - FOOD FOR ALL
Food security is defined as a situation in which all people obtain a safe, culturally acceptable, nutritionally adequate diet through a sustainable food system that maximizes self-reliance and social justice. (Hamm and Bellows, J Nutr Educ Behav. 2003; 35:27-43)
Food Insecurity: the inadequate or insecure access to adequate food due to financial constraints.
