What is food insecurity?
Food insecurity is the most broadly-used measure of food deprivation in the United States. The USDA defines food insecurity as meaning that “consistent access to adequate food is limited by a lack of money and other resources at times during the year.”
Food insecurity is a complex, sustainable development issue linked to many causes. We take a look at three of the largest contributing factors to food insecurity including economics, location and food waste.

Food insecurity has a multitude of health effects on individuals. From basic nutrition and self-image to human development and the first 1,000 days, we explore a range of physical and mental health effects that food insecure individuals may experience.
While American food insecurity affects hundreds of thousands of people, there is an active effort to reduce the amount of people who live with hunger.
How can you help fight food insecurity?
Fighting food insecurity requires the active participation of multiple communities. Individuals, restaurants, corporations and assistance programs all have a common goal to help but none of this would be possible without coordinated action.
