Food insecurity is defined by a lack of reliable access to quality, sufficiently nutritious food for a healthy life.
There is consistent evidence that food insecurity is linked to lower diet quality and physical health problems, including an elevated risk of diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease.
A growing number of studies have also correlated food insecurity with adverse mental health outcomes, such as higher rates of depression, stress, anxiety, and lagging performance in school for children.
Educating individuals experiencing food insecurity about nutrition can help them plan healthy meals within even the tightest budget.
