According to a survey approximate 925 million people do not have enough food to eat. So it is a challenge to secure food as well as produce enough to fulfil all needs. A person can live without other necessities but cannot live without food. The food security refers to the ability of food systems to ensure that everyone has enough food to live a healthy life.  A household is considered food-secure when its occupants do not live in hunger or fear of starvation. There are many reasons behind this, due to poor farming system, export restrictions, panic buying, increased farming for use in bio-fuels, global population growth, climate change, loss of agricultural land to residential and industrial development, and growing consumer demand in largest populated country such as China and India are claimed to have pushed up the price of grain. Some other factors which also cause food shortage, the agricultural productivity; soil health, water security, and food quality in storage and distribution are identified as the primary determinants of food security. So in this paper we have discussed how to secure food and enhance farming system by using Wireless Sensors Networks (WSN).
