    The World Food Summit of 1996 defined food security as existing “when all people at all times have access to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life”.  Usually this concept refers to both physical and economic access to food which meets peoples dietary needs and preference within reason.  Food security is based on three pillars.

    1. Food availability: sufficient quantities of food available on a consistent basis.

    2. Food access: having sufficient resources to obtain appropriate foods for a nutritious diet.

    3. Food use: appropriate use based on knowledge of basic nutrition and care, as well as adequate water and sanitation.
