Differences in aspects of the physical environment, social environment, value of life, and diversification of staple foods between urban and rural areas will impact income and household food consumption discrepancies. The income earned by households will affect food and non-food consumption and the level of household food security. This study aims to examine the food security of poor households in urban and rural areas in Banjar Regency using the Household Food Insecurity Access Scale (HFIAS) method and the Maxwell method. The results of measuring the level of food security using the HFIAS method and the Maxwell method show that the level of food security of rural households is better than that of urban households. In addition, this study found that household size is an essential factor affecting household food security.
