Food security, commercialization of Indian agriculture, and technological options
MetadataShow full item record
Those who cannot afford to eat in ways acceptable to society, who find food shopping stressful or potentially humiliating experience because they might have insufficient money, whose children cannot have a packed lunch similar to their friends, who do not call on others to avoid having to return calls, these are people excluded from the minimum acceptable way of life. Food is an expression of who a person is and what they are worth and of their ability to provide their families basic needs. It is also a focus for social exchange. Food is, of course, a major contributor to health and well being, but it is not just health that is compromised in poor households, social behaviour is also at risk.
