“ Food security is a situation that exists when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life 

These lines from “the State of food insecurity, 2001” defined the concept of Food security, already recognized since the 1974 World food summit.

The portal Scidev.net has published an annotated list of key concepts related to food security that may help your research.
