Hunger is defined as the uneasy or painful sensation caused by a recurrent or involuntary lack of food, and is often a consequence of food insecurity.
Malnutrition is not getting enough food or not getting the right sort of food. Even if people eat enough, they can become malnourished if the food they eat does not provide the proper amounts of nutrients to meet daily nutritional requirements.
Food security is the consistent access to adequate safe and nutritious food that is not limited by a lack of money and other resources, thus a constant lack of adequate safe and nutritious food that is restricted by a lack of money or other resources defines someone who is food insecure.
Populations at risk are groups of people who are likely to become food insecure, and likely to experience hunger. These vulnerable populations often exist within low-income groups.
We are the leading voice of hunger for the vulnerable facing food insecurity and a community-based leader in fighting food scarcity in 24 counties.
Our trusted programs are created to give hope to the hopeless when faced with starvation. Our organization saves thousands of pounds of food every year that would otherwise be wasted or thrown away.
We are dedicated to helping urban and rural communities throughout Central Georgia and serving their most vulnerable residents no matter their demographics or socioeconomic background. We work in a region facing one of the greatest areas of food insecurity in the Nation, and we are creating advocacy and policy that can actively combat this issue.
