Food insecurity is a term that is used to refer to situations where people lack physical and economic access to safe, nutritious and socially acceptable food that would enable them to live a healthy and a productive life. This means that food insecurity refers to physical inadequacy. It may be chronic, seasonal or temporary. Food insecurity is the opposite of food security, which refers to a situation where people have enough safe, nutritious, and culturally acceptable food to satisfy all their nutritional needs for a healthy and productive life. Food insecurity comes with severe nutritional consequences including malnutrition, anemia, Vitamin A deficiency, iodine deficiency, iron deficiency, and many others. According to USDA, about a quarter of all households in the United States suffer from low food insecurity at anyone during the year. In addition, USDA also shows that about in one-fourth of all food-insecure households and one-third of those with low food security, the occurrence is frequent and sometimes chronic. On average, USDA research shows that households that are food insecure may have a prolonged period of insecurity running for 7 months.
