Presentation of the Report on Food Insecurity in Asturias


The Concepción Arenal Chair of Agenda 2030 of the University of Oviedo has promoted the publication Food Insecurity in Asturias (2023), under the direction of Amparo Novo Vázquez and María-Rosario Alonso-Ibáñez.


This work arises from the need to alert about the importance of guaranteeing the food needs of the vulnerable population by ensuring that all people have access to healthy, nutritious and sufficient food throughout the year to lead a healthy and active life. Food security is fundamental if we want to achieve SDG 2: Zero Hunger and SDG 12: Responsible Production and Consumption, of the 2030 Agenda.


According to this study, there is mild food insecurity in Asturias. At this level are mostly those who live alone and are under 65 years old, single-parent households (mothers and fathers) with children, those with low income and, above all, affects households in which the main breadwinner is a woman.


The Study also warns about job insecurity and unemployment, as the main triggers of the situation of anxiety suffered by not having enough food, or having to make changes in the diet for less healthy foods.
