ill-fed ill-fed


  • (adj) not getting adequate food



  1. Countries in which more than half the labor force grows crops or raises livestock use scarce foreign exchange to pay for imported foodstuffsand are still ill-fed.
  2. Yet Bolivia's economy is still near bankruptcy, and its 3,500,000 ill-housed, ill-fed people are never far from revolt.
  3. The party had proclaimed itself as the champion of the common man, the little fellow, the ill-fed.


  • But when Roosevelt said "one third of the Nation are ill-clothed, ill-housed and ill-fed" that's exactly what it was.
