Communities and Extension are increasingly concerned with issues such as hunger, nutrition, food safety, and sustainable methods of addressing these problems. Community food security is a concept that suggests entities such as UF/IFAS Extension and community development organizations should use a more holistic way of addressing these issues. The purpose of this paper is to provide some background and history on the concept of community food security.
