Food Security means that all people at all times have physical and economic access to adequate
amounts of nutritious, safe, and culturally appropriate food, which are produced in an environmentally
sustainable and socially just manner, and that people are able to make informed decisions
about their food choices. Food Security also means that the people who produce our food
are able to earn a decent, living wage growing, catching, producing, processing, transporting,
retailing, and serving food. At the core of food security is access to healthy food and optimal
nutrition for all. Food access is closely linked to food supply, so food security is dependent on a
healthy and sustainable food system. A food system includes the production, processing, distribution,
marketing, acquisition, and consumption of food. This article examines the Food Security
Bill 2013 of India and reports its benefits and also possible changes that can be taken into
account to enable more food and nutritional security for people living in poverty and below
poverty conditions in the country.
