food insecurity
 n.— «In the past, the concept of food security could never become a cultural value, because food insecurity was then the norm. Only more recently, since it has been shown that enough food could be produced to satisfy all human needs, has food security become an moral and humanitarian issue.» —“Food prospects are bleak, Club of Rome leader warns” Globe and Mail (Toronto, Can.) Oct. 20, 1983.
