ABOUT FOOD INSECURITY AWARENESS WEEK- AMAZON GSF CAMPAIGN
Food Insecurity Awareness Week is a push to raise awareness, educate, and inspire Amazonians to give and receive deeply. As we learn more about food insecurity and its impact on our global community, we want to create an engaging way for you to marinate on the topics shared while prioritizing your wellness.
What is food insecurity? Food insecurity is defined as systemic and social barriers that prevent a household from easily obtaining food to fuel a healthy lifestyle.
Global barriers to food security include: food availability, food access, and food utilization.
Food Availability: when a community has a reliable source of food to support their community.
Food Access: having adequate resources to obtain healthy foods for a balanced diet.
Food Utilization: driven by a community’s knowledge of basic nutrition and care.
