Solution :-

The people living below the poverty line might be food insecure all the time while better-off people might also turn food insecure due to calamity or disaster. The social composition along with the inability to buy food also plays a role in food insecurity. The SCs, STs and some sections of the OBCs (lower castes among them) who have either poor land-based or very low land productivity are prone to food insecurity. Other than these sections, people hit by a natural disaster are also likely to be food insecure.
