Food security exists when all people have physical and economic access to enough, safe and nutritious food that always meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.  Food insecurity, on the other hand, is part of a continuum that includes hunger (food deprivation), malnutrition (deficiencies, imbalances, or excesses of nutrients), and famine.
