Abstract

The National Food Security Bill is all set to become an Act and give legal entitlement to the citizens of the country to food. However the Bill does not define what food security is; but simply focuses on cereal consumption and entitlement while countries elsewhere worry about dietary diversity. Hence, I thought I should begin by finding out what is the common man’s perception of food security. I conducted a short survey interviewing people from different backgrounds a la “What did you eat yesterday?” of The New York Times.

Keywords: Food Security, Mumbai
