Food Insecurity First name Last name Institution Introduction Food security for a country means the ability of its occupants to have enough food that is sufficient for all its members. Food insecurity is the opposite of that when a part of a country’s occupants do not have enough food to sustain themselves. Currently food insecurity is very rampant in the United States. However it cannot be said that the whole country faces food insecurity. Like other problems it seems that food insecurity attacks the poor marginalized people more than others. It is therefore clear that food security is determined by factors such as classicism marginalization oppression and many others. The existence of food insecurity is an aspect that the government has recognized though it is addressed as a national problem it is common knowledge that it does not affect those from high economic classes amongst the community. According to are taken up by all responsible parties the situation will only worsen. Issues such as higher food prices will at no time affect those that are well off economic wise. It is an issue that will continue affecting people that struggle to maintain afloat economic wise. The issue on food security should therefore be dealt with like a national epidemic while noting that it is more of a classicism issue. References Andrea Freeman. (2007).

Task: You will write a well-researched argumentative essay on a social and economic justice issue of your choice that is related to the focal areas covered in the course. Use everything you have learned this semester including lectures, discussions, and readings to demonstrate your understanding of course concepts. Keep in mind that this paper is a final exam because your learning will be assessed thru your writing. Audience: Policymakers, stakeholders, and community members with interests and concerns in a debatable issue. Because this is an argumentative essay and you are writing for a general audience, do not use first-person (e.g., “I” or “me”), you can write “This essay argues that” instead. Additionally, do not write contractions (e.g., can’t, won’t), you should write out all words. Research requirements: You are required to use at least 5 peer-reviewed, scholarly articles published within the last 10 years. Scholarly articles serve as the evidence necessary to support your argument and establish credibility with the reader. Without this evidence, your essay is not an argumentative essay, it is solely an opinion paper. You may use other sources such as websites, films, and newspapers in your paper in addition to the required 5 scholarly articles.
