Public Service Announcement: Food Security
By: Skyler Edwin & Sanna Wiehl
Defining Food Security
"When all people at all times have sufficient, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life."
Food security is originated into three subjects:
Food Availibility: Sufficient quantities of food at all times. Food Access: Having healthy resources to provide foods for a healthy diet. Food Use: appropriate use based on knowledge of basic nutrition and care, as well as adequate water and sanitation.
"There is enough food in the world to feed everyone adequately; the problem is distribution."
The Challenges in achieving food security
Global Water Crisis: There is currently 1 billion suffering dehydration in the world. The problem is people overusing, wasting, and polluting water. Land Degradation: The process of using land to a degree it turns into a desert. The problem is humans overusing the land, over polluting, and degrading the soil of the land. Agricultural diseases: Diseases affecting people, plants, or animals. The problem is the diseases affect the plants, which affect humans and animals. Food Sovereignty: A city or country that takes control over their own food system. The problem is people overdistributing and wasting foods.
