Hunger is an individual-level physiological condition that may result from food insecurity.
Food insecurity is a household-level economic and social condition of limited or uncertain access to adequate food.
Food insecure households are not necessarily food insecure all the time. Food insecurity may reflect a household’s need to make trade-offs between important basic needs, such as housing or medical bills and purchasing nutritionally adequate foods. Source: http://www.ers.usda.gov/
