FOOD INSECURITY AND SOCIAL ASPECTS
Food insecurity is about the inability to have access to sufficient, well-balanced food due to physical and/or financial shortcomings. By identifying the specific factors that contribute to food insecurity, and learning about experiences people have, we may be able to bridge the gap to fulfil a smoother, more targeted support distribution system.
Ms Nichol will go in depth on food insecurity, where it began, and how to move forward. How does our society get rid of Food Insecurity, which will lead us closer to social stability?
