Previous research and literature show that food secure household with higher income have access to better food consumption in rural Pakistan. Through proportional allocation technique a sample size of 102 respondents were randomly selected from the study area. A multinomial regression model was used for data analysis which was based on three categories. The findings of this study were based on age, family type, number of family members, off farm income which has significant effect on household food security. Food outline has also significant effect on household income. Thus, those households who were engaged in the farming experience are also much secure for food but household with less experience and privation of livestock activities are comparatively lower than the experienced one.
