Hunger & Food Security
Overview
"Food security" means that people have access, at all times, to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members. NIFA addresses food security through research, education, and extension work within the Land-Grant University System; through federally funded state nutrition education programs; through grant programs for private nonprofits to address community food security issues; and through partnerships across USDA.

"Community Food Security" addresses food security at a community level, which is a systems approach including local infrastructure, economic and job security, federal food assistance, food recovery and donations, education and awareness, and community food production and marketing.
