Defining Food Insecurity and Hunger
Hunger is the physical condition experienced at the individual level. It is often experienced by people who have very low food security.
Food Insecurity is how we measure the degree of hunger experienced. It affects individual and population level health, the local economy, and educational achievement in primary, secondary and college settings.
Measuring food insecurity can also give insight to correlating factors of poverty, unemployment, and homeownership.
