  • Stock and production in a given area and the capacity to bring in food from elsewhere, through trade or aid.

  • Adequate quantities of food, through purchase, home production, barter, gifts, borrowing or food aid.

  • Design and implement food distribution channels and systems for large numbers of people.

  • Provision of nutritional information on the various foodstuffs and feeding practices.

  • Train the people in the use of back-yard gardens especially those who live in congested settings with no land for farming.

  • Teach the people on safe and nutritious cooking, storage and hygiene practices within the household.

  • Conducting food assessments and nutrition assessments.
