Social Work Issue of Food Insecurity
Preliminary Research Report
This research revealed that food insecurity is a complex problem affecting many people worldwide since they do not have resources to meet their daily needs. Though there’s a relationship between food insecurity and poverty, not all the people are living below the are experiencing food insecurity. And those living above the edge of debt can also share the issue. Regulations preventing collusive behavior in businesses, for instance, may result in low prices and higher consumer choice (Miller & Thomas, 2020). Three factors encourage governments to apply to change behavior as a managing tool in food consumption and health. First, the government finds it difficult to solve complex problems by itself; hence, it requires its citizens’ active participation and cooperation to achieve a significant process (Miller & Thomas, 2020). The interventions can also be cost-effective using the limited resources in developing more sophisticated approaches in changing the behavior of consumers other than concentrating on outdated policy tools. Lastly, the government can draw benefits from the enhancement of personal responsibility. When citizens show more considerable restraint and know the impacts of their behaviors on themselves, their families, and the environment, they can actively progress societies’ social capital.
