Rx for Food
What is Food Insecurity?
The USDA defines food insecurity as a state in which “consistent access to adequate food is limited by a lack of money and other resources at times during the year.”
- High food security: no reports of food access problems or limitations.
- Marginal food security: one or two reports of anxiety over food sufficiency or shortage of food in the house. Little or no indication of changes in diets or food intake.
- Low food security: reports of reduced quality, variety, or desirability of diet. Little or no indication of reduced food intake.
- Very low food security: Reports of multiple occasions of disrupted eating patterns and reduced food intake.
