The right to food aims to bring about a change in the lives of millions of persons suffering from hunger. To ensure a world free from hunger this right needs to be justiciable . Justiciability means a mechanism which ensures every instance of violation of the right can be redressed by the judiciary or any quasi judicial organ. There are two sets of mechanism for the redressal of the right to food, one at the international level represented by the International Court of Justice and the United Nations treaty bodies and the other at the domestic level. At the international level the justiciability largely depends on the consent of the states while at the domestic level the legal frame work is highly inadequate. Therefore the international organisations and the Nation States needs to wake by to the sufferings of the hungry and starving population and take steps to make the right to food a truly justiciable right.
