To celebrate a year of consecration of the Mediterranean Diet in Portugal, as intangible heritage of humanity by UNESCO, the PNPAS launched the poster "The ten principles of the Mediterranean diet in Portugal" which simply and graphically explains the concept, allowing it's dissemination and better understanding.
Food insecurity (FI) has received much attention in recent years, even in high-income countries, due to
the increasing trend of poverty and social inequalities indicators, as a result of the global financial

Our study aims to evaluate FI trends during the economic crisis in Portugal and to identify regional
disparities throughout the country.
