“Hunger is an important aspect indicating food insecurity”. Give an argument in favour of this statement along with its dimensions.
Food security implies availability, accessibility and affordability of food at all times. Thus, if a person is hungry for either part of the year or throughout the year, this indicates food insecurity.
If the person is chronically hungry, then that person is not able to access an adequate quality or quantity of food at any time. If the person is seasonally hungry, that person is not able to avail adequate quality or quantity of food at certain times of the year.
