Food Security in terms of food allergies...interesting concept.
Food security happens when...
farmers and fishers can earn a fair income for their efforts
food is produced in a way that is safe for people and the environment
local, regional, and community food production is supported
social justice and inclusion are priorities
all people are empowered to work together to create positive change in the food system and our communities

Food insecurity happens whenever food is hard to get, such as when:
there are no farms or grocery stores nearby
our food travels great distances to get to us
there isn't enough money
healthy & safe food is not available
healthy foods cost more than unhealthy foods
our rivers are polluted so fish don't survive
our traditional foods are not available or accessible ... curity.htm

Daughter: asthma, allergies to egg, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, most legumes (not soy and green beans) & penicillin. Developing hayfever type allergies.
Husband: no allergies
Me: Oral Allergy Syndrome, Allergic to Birch trees
