Abstract: While the definition of food security encompasses food availability, access, utilization and stability, most attention appears to have been on increasing the amount of foods available. Evidence suggests, however, that widespread hunger can exist even in times of increasing food availability. This draws attention to the need to distinguish between household and individual food security. Even though households may have ready access to food supplies, individual food security requires appropriate resources, markets and social networks.
