Food for now, food security for later
‘The right to adequate food is realized when every man, woman and child, alone or in community with others, has physical and economic access at all times to adequate food or means for its procurement.’
From the Fact Sheet No. 34, The Right to Adequate Food , UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights
The right to adequate food is not about charity, it is a human right. It protects the right of all people to live a dignified life, free from hunger and food insecurity. If only all countries could provide for themselves and not be dependent on other nations for food or food security. Due to wars, climatological conditions or general insecurity this is simply not a reality.<
