Food Security and Urban Farming Field Notes
A slideshow by Lakshman Yapa, Jessica Adomako, and Susan Friedman
In 2012, 17.6 million American households (or 15.5 percent of total households) were food insecure, that is, a household where some members lacked access at some time during the year to enough food for an active healthy life. In seeking practical answers to food insecurity and poverty, it is imperative that we look beyond the official framework of the last 50 years.
