How does social inability to buy food also play a role in food insecurity?
Answer:

  • 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.
