The authors discuss household food insecurity in the U.S., a problem the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) terms to be a lack of sufficient food with suitable nutritional content to allow all members of a household to have an active and healthy lifestyle. A case involving the economic challenges faced by a church-run food pantry is said to represent the experiences of food pantries nationally. The authors advocate for a larger government role in assuring household food security.
