Seasonal hunger occurs when a person is unable to find work and Chronic hunger is the result of an inadequate diet
Let’s try to understand the two types of hunger in detail.
Seasonal hunger occurs when a person is unable to find employment for the entire year or a whole season. Seasonal hunger is generally related to cycles of growing food and harvesting.
Chronic hunger is a consequence of persistently inadequate diets in terms of quantity or quality of food.
Seasonal hunger is prevalent in rural areas due to the seasonal nature of agricultural activities and in urban areas due to casual laborers.
Chronic hunger is typically caused due to poverty and very low income which entails the inability to buy food even for survival.
Differentiate Between Seasonal Hunger and Chronic Hunger?
Seasonal hunger is the type of hunger that occurs when a person is unable to find work for a long time. This can happen due to the seasonal nature of work such as agriculture and harvesting and is, therefore, common in rural areas. On the contrary, chronic hunger is caused due to an insufficient and inadequate diet because of poverty.
