What is Food Security?

We believe that food security exists when all people, all the time have what they need to eat well.  This means that food is:


There is always enough food for all people.


All people can have food that meets their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.


All food is produced and consumed in culturally appropriate, sustainable and dignified ways.


All people can eat well, free from physical, economic, social or political barriers.


All people understand, benefit from, and can make changes to the food system.
