Food Security

Food security exists when all people at all times have access to enough, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life. Food security includes both physical and economic access to food that meets people's dietary needs as well as their food preferences. --World Health Organization

"People with 'food security' are able to get healthy food that they can afford. Dietitians believe that food security is a basic right for all Canadians." -- Dietitians of Canada
