Food Security

  • Food Security for a Household:

    access by all members at all times to enough food for an active, healthy life, including at a minimum:

    • Ready availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods; &

    • Assured ability to acquire acceptable foods in reasonably acceptable ways.

  • Food Insecurity for a Household:

    limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods or limited or uncertain ability to acquire acceptable foods in socially acceptable ways.

  • Food security status of each household lies somewhere along a continuum divided into four ranges:

    • High Food Security: no problems/anxiety regarding food;

    • Marginal Food Security: had problems/anxiety at times, but quality, variety and quantity were not substantially reduced;

    • Low Food Security:households reduced quality, variety & desirability of diets but quantity of food intake/normal eating patterns not substantially disrupted; &

    • Very Low Food Security:eating patterns of one or more household members disrupted and food intake reduced because household lacked money/other resources for food.

  • MIDRANGE SEVERE: In the last 12 months, did you ever cut the size of your meals or skip meals because there wasn’t enough money for food?

  • MOST SEVERE: In the last 12 months, did you ever not eat for a whole day because there wasn’t enough money for food? In the last 12 months, did any of the children ever not eat for a whole day because there wasn’t enough money for food?
