This study investigated the effect of food supply on household incomes. A discipline correlation design was applied in examining the effect of food supply and household income. A sample of 250 respondents selected, however, one of the limitations of alteration beyond the researcher’s control, only 70 questionnaires are retrieved. The findings indicated that the effect of food expenses on household incomes was so high due to the fact that people totally do not have food at all, so they spend a big proportion of their incomes on food. Okumu (2007) also agrees that there is significant positive effect of food expenditure on Household incomes. Hones Harska and Nadolynic (2007) also show that there is no direct effect of food expenditure on house hold incomes. Furthermore, the finding indicated that food supply significantly correlated with the population. Okumu (2007) argues that food supply negatively influence the population.
