Overview



Food security means access by all people at all times to enough food for an active, healthy life.

ERS plays a leading role in Federal research on food security and food security measurement in U.S. households and communities and provides data access and technical support to social science scholars to facilitate their research on food security. ERS research focuses on:

  • food security in U.S. households,
  • food security's impact on the well-being of children, adults, families, and communities, and
  • food security's relationship to public policies, public assistance programs, and the economy.
