Migration as a growing phenomenon is affecting global economic, demographic, political, and social policies. The current universal tendencies reveal differents travesties that faced world populations, who migrate due to lack of food security, crises, and conflict. Is it possible that migration plays an important role in the risk-reduction strategy for households in developing countries? While migration has been a source of economic and cultural benefits, it is vital to explore its impacts on our societies, more particularly during the Covid-19 crisis. This paper tried to find answers to these questions by examining the relationship between food security, migration, and other related factors during Covid-19 in India. Our results show that Gender, Household Size, Agriculture Production, Saving, Migration, and Regions are statistically significant. An additional unit in agriculture production makes 17% more likely household food secure. All the same, one additional member leaving the household for work is associated with 2% less likely to be food securely. Enhancing agricultural production and controlling rural migration are crucial to ensuring long-term food security.
