Some of the longer term psychological effects of food scarcity include a higher rate of anxiety and depression. Anxiety can induce a pattern of food hoarding and stashing. Food hoarding can manifest as stocking up on food at home, or carrying food, snacks, or meals around. Restrictions of food items can also lead to placing these foods on a pedestal and producing an unhealthy obsession for them. This is often a coping mechanism and is regularly connected to a past involving food scarcity.
