Food availability in Yogyakarta in 2015 was in sufficient condition but there were still of 20 food and nutrition-lack villages. The purpose of this study was to find out the factors that influence the level of household food security in Yogyakarta. This study used secondary data 1,160 households from National Socio-Economic Survey in Yogyakarta 2015. Data was analyzed by Ordinary Least Square (OLS). The results showed that the affordability of household food was 98.53%. Energy adequacy rate was 90.57%. The level of diversity of food consumption was 85.74%. The level of nutrient balance of energy sources was 98.28%. The level of household food security was 96.43%. The conclusion of the study was that the higher age of housewives, education of housewives, and income of household members will increase the level of household food security. The more number of household members will reduce household food security. Households living in urban areas were more resistant to food than households living in rural areas. Poor households were less food resistant than non-poor households. Farmer households were more resistant to food than non-farm households. The government needs to increase people's income through providing capital facilities and expanding new jobs.
