‘What does ‘access’ to food mean? What is ‘food security?’
Being able to access food is the key component of food security. Food needs to be available and people need enough money to purchase food, thus providing a climate of accessibility.
The United Nation Food and Agricultural Organization define food security as existing ‘when all people, at all times, have access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy lifestyle.’
