What does ‘Seasonal Hunger’ mean?
Answer:

  • Seasonal hunger is related to cycles of food growing and harvesting.
  • This is prevalent in rural areas because of the seasonal nature of agricultural activities and in urban areas because of the casual labour, e.g., there is less work for casual construction labour during the rainy season.
  • This type of hunger exists when a person is unable to get work for the entire year
