Abstract

Most of the studies on ageing in Kerala, India were centered on the health aspects, old age homes, socio-economic problems and quality of life of the elderly. But studies on the extent of food availability and accessibility of the elderly living Below Poverty Line (BPL) in Kerala, India have not been undertaken till date. The present study aims at examining the food availability and accessibility of the elderly living Below Poverty Line. The study is conducted not only to access their food availability and accessibility but also to see how they consume with their own income, pension or family income, or to see how much they depend on their children, relatives or others and to analyze whether their income is sufficient or not to meet their requirements.
