As the hunger season sets in, food security conditions remain generally stable over most of the region. This is in line with the improved regional food availability over the 2009/10 consumption period on account of better food crop production in most SADC countries. Adequate on?farm and market food availability has contributed to relatively stable food prices. Price stability has facilitated adequate access by market?dependent households.

- Production slightly lower than the previous season as less area was planted due to higher prices of fertiliser and seeds.
- LVAC estimates between 400 and 450 thousand people will require assistance before the next harvest.
- Regional food supplies have improved in Southern Africa following harvests of food crops from the main agricultural production season. These harvests have resulted in increased on-farm stocks and availability on local markets which in turn increase access to food for all households including the poorer households as seasonal prices drop in most markets.

- Despite tighter food supplies during the hunger season, overall food security conditions remain generally stable. This is attributable to various targeted food assistance programs and the availability of seasonal crops, which has improved household food availability. Food aid distributions have contributed significantly to ameliorate food insecurity by providing much needed food assistance to vulnerable groups. In Zimbabwe, where the need is the greatest, 7 million people are reported to be receiving food assistance.
