After discussing the concepts of hunger, undernutrition, food insecurity and food poverty, we propose a methodology to measure food poverty which integrates two innovations which were developed separately: 1) construction and cost estimate of the Normative Food Basket (nfb ) for the concrete composition of each household in Mexico City, carried out by Evalúa DF, 2) The comparison between the cost of the nfb and households’ food expenditure, instead of comparing it with income, as usually done. This integration allows a rigorous diagnosis of the food condition in Mexico City. Lastly, results of applying both innovations are contrasted with the results derived from comparing the costs of inegi -cepal s nfb and coneval s Minimum Welfare Line with households’ income.
