Take Action on Household Food Insecurity

Household food insecurity – a lack of money to buy enough healthy food – is a serious issue in Alberta. More than 1 in 10 households in Alberta experience household food insecurity.

Household food insecurity contributes to poor health, and at the same time, poor health puts households at greater risk for food insecurity.

At the root, household food insecurity is an income-related issue. Addressing household food insecurity means ensuring all Albertans have enough money to meet their basic needs.
