About Food Security / About Food Security
All people at all times need access to enough nutritious and safe food to achieve good health, productivity and a sense of well-being.
"Food Security" is about creating helpful environments that make "healthy eating the easy choice", where people are able to meet their nutritional requirements in personally and culturally acceptable ways.
In food-secure environments, food is produced, processed, distributed, marketed, consumed and disposed of in ways that provide enough food today as well as in the future.
This requires supportive policies, programs and systems. It takes all of us – communities, businesses, community organizations and governments – working together, to achieve food security for all, nurture the health of people and secure the health of the planet.
