How does social inability to buy food also play a role in food insecurity?
- The SCs, STs and some sections of the OBCs, who have low land productivity are prone to food insecurity.
- The people who are affected by natural disasters and have to migrate to other areas in search of work are also amongst the most food insecure people.
- Malnutrition among women can even put the unborn baby at the risk of malnutrition.
- A large proportion of pregnant and nursing mothers, and children under the age of S years are also among the food insecure population.
