The problem of food insecurity has been pervasive and too crucial an issue to ignore as part of economic growth and social stability, particularly in developing countries. The challenge of achieving sustainable and inclusive food security is one of the most salient objectives of development interventions. It is an integral part of human security in the form of the right and need of people to have economic and physical access to sufficient and quality food for a healthy and active life. Successive global, regional and national measures attempted to address food insecurity by reducing the ‘unacceptably high’ number of people going hungry (FAO, 2012, p 8). They have registered good results, but are still lagging behind, for example, the aim of cutting by half the number of people hungry by 2015.
