Abstract:
Sustainable food security involves strengthening the livelihood security of all members within a household by ensuring both physical and economic access to balanced diet. India's biggest challenge still remains ensuring food and nutritional security to its masses. A country can be said to have achieved complete food and nutrition security if each and every person in that country is able to consume 'an adequate and balance diet' on a regular basis. In India, availability of food remains the focus to the family as food consumes the bulk of the family income in majority of the houses. Nationwide, 44.4 percent of income in urban areas is used for the purchase of food. Nature of food consumption is directly related to occupation and income of the family members. On the basis of above issue our present work is emphasis on effects of economic status on food security of urban area and selected study area is Asansol Municipal Corporation(AMC) at West Bardhaman District of West Bengal State. Through this paper we try to establish a fact that how food security is controlled by income and occupational status of urban people.
