Household food security exists when all members, at all times, have access to enough food for an active, healthy life. Individuals who are food secure do not live in hunger or fear of starvation.
Food insecurity, on the other hand, is a situation of “limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods or limited or uncertain ability to acquire acceptable foods in socially acceptable ways,” according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
County Harvest serves a growing population of families, seniors, veterans and children in our area who are not sure where their next meal will come from. We find simple solutions to tackle a complicated problem, by making connections to help fight hunger in Westchester County.
