It is physically impossible to live without any food in life.
However some researchers believe that a people can manage survive without the same ammount of food consumption they had daily for extended periods of time because their metabolisms attempt to adapt to this changes so that when your body senses starvation, it extracts every last nutrition from whatever food you eat and over time it gets trained to become more efficient in processing of food.
So how do…

For a couple of different reasons, this was the mission where my motivation and momentum petered out.
Picking it up now, on the last day (not an uncommon phenomenon for me) we'll see how far I get.
I found a 4 year old report on Food Security in my hometown, commissioned by the previous Mayor:http://oaklandfoodsystem.pbworks.com/
It's a broad based survey, but the big picture conclusion appears to be that the major… Continue

The biggest challenge to food security in my own local commuity and country is being able to feed all the people. About 17% of Thailand is undernourished and that is way too high. There has to be more food produced in Thailand and kept in Thailand. I hope that my country will have enough food for everyone in the country. I have a feeling some of the developing countries will be fighting over enough food to eat. I hope Thailand will be able to produce enough rice to sustain the country without… Continue

I'm fortunate to live in a rural area with a strong local food economy, easily accessible at the farmer's market. I've moved from a rural area where the fields were filled with sheep, but the only major food sources were supermarkets. Much like major cities, I was dependent on transportation to keep these shelves stocked and our buying habits not to fluctuate too greatly. During the swine flu crisis, recommendations to stockpile 2 weeks worth of food may have resulted in a food crisis, had… Continue

There are about 60 millions poeple living in Thailand. I know that lot of people who are not living near to big cities such as Bangkok, or Pattaya, they must be poor people who are homeless. Thai government won't be able to support all the foods to the poor people, which will be the most challenging part. But people are allowed to eat foods from the supporting center. I believe that there would have be a way to feed all the people including the poor people, and homeless people.

Are you quite sure that you know and see what this word is all about?
I live in a Third-World Country (Well... Atleast thats what I hear from the people) and see, almost everyday, what poverty really is. It's hard to feel something unless you see it for yourself and not through other people's eyes.
"Yeah yeah... They live in poverty... It's a really sad fact."
You know, some… Continue

The biggest problems I see with the food crisis are:
1) Misinformation. People are told they need a certain amount of food on a daily basis. However, people cannot always accommodate either due to financial woes, ignorance on how to adapt, or what is really healthy for that individual. Many people do not know how to take care of their own selves, that they are terrified that anything they actually grow may kill them.
2) The 'feel happy' connection - People want to be social… Continue

living in a relatuvely well off country like ireland i have not experienced this kind of food shortage or agricultural disaster in my lifetime. however in the past in ireland (1845-1852) there was a terrible potato famine, known as the great famine. the cause of this was a potato blight. the potato famine caused most of irelands potato crops to rot and unfortunately at the ime the british were ruling ireland and only made the situation worse by charging the poor irish people to pay high prices… Continue

Your objective: Describe the biggest challenge to food
security in your own local community or country -- and an
innovative solution that is already underway.
IMO, the biggest challenge for us in America is the cost of food. The cost of food seems to rise every year with inflation but salaries and overall income stays about the same. I think this has a lot to do with the cost of living in America. The government taxes as well as most states. They tax individuals and… Continue

I live in Oklahoma, USA, immortalized in musical culture by Rogers and Hammerstein's musical, in which performers belted out lyrics that would become the state's official song "Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plains...," as well as performers asking "why can't farmers and cow-men just be friends?" Oklahoma is still a predominantly rural state with a high Native American population, significant rural poverty, and depopulation of the country-side as rural youth move to… Continue

In France, we don't have much problems of food shortage. We produce a lot of cereals, animals, vegetables and fruits. The problems are elsewhere :
1/ Food is expensive, so it is hard for poor people to eat correctly (students for instance)
2/ Though we have a lot to eat here, we get used to import a lot of fruits and vegetables from others countries to eat them outside their period of growing in France, and that is a bad thing for the environment.
3/ It is… Continue

When I was young(er) I remember watching a tribe about a tribal community in Kenya. One of the things that has distinctly stuck with me over the years is how the cow is considered currency to many. One of the earlier lessons that Amy Smith bestowed upon us was to use the resources available to us. Here is an example of how cows can create electricity!

Food security in Prague is less of a problem in some ways than in many places: many Czechs own or rent a 'country cottage' -- often little more than a garden shack, on small plots in 'garden colonies'. During the growing season it's common for relatives and neighbors to stop by with extra produce that would otherwise go to waste. Many are also adept foragers, with mushroom picking being almost a national sport.
However, since the Revolution in 1989, food security has begun to be… Continue

i live in India. India is said to be the land of farmers. we have lot's of folk songs that praise the work of farmers. Unfortunately, this farmers are exploited by middle-mens. this is so because majority of farmers are illiterate. this situation has grave implications. one is youth is gradually losing interest in farming and their goal is now to migrate to city and take up some petty job.

So I finally had time to come back to Evoke today, and I got a good look at how much I have to do to catch up. It is a rather hefty task. But I have to start somewhere.
I live in the US, North Eastern Ohio, and the food security here is very good. Poverty, more than food scarcity, is what threatens our food security, I think. That said, there are always things that can be improved, and plenty of neat projects.
On the national scale the US senate just passed the… Continue

It is indeed true that California is facing a drought, at this current moment. But it is also true that California is almost always in a drought, since most of the state is a large desert and rain is far from plentiful despite the constant transpiration and evaporation from the Pacific Ocean that California borders. The lack of safe drinking water is not the only problem that is stressing out the residents of this sun shine state, for simple acts such as showering and watering the lawn are acts… Continue
