A study was undertaken in two tribal dominated districts of West Bengal to study the household food security of Santhal farm families. The data was collected from 100 respondents covering 4 villages through interview schedule and PRA technique. The study revealed that majority of households belonged to nuclear families with low level of education and farming as their main occupation. 44% of the household had food grains shortage throughout the year since past five years and 62% of them had inadequate grain production in the previous year. Except cereal, the diet of Santhal were inadequate and far below the recommended amount
