The study aims to assess the determinants of small scale farmer household food security among Gedarif and Rahad localities from eastern Sudan. Data used relies heavily on the results of sample survey of 336 households in 8 villages collected during 2014. Analytical techniques employed included descriptive statistics, and multinomial regression model. The study has shown that, land, credit access; and technology using in agriculture are most factors determining household food security in the study area. In the light of the findings from the study, it is recommended that policy makers should increase effort to make micro-credit accessible to rural farmers targeting agriculture and livestock sector to create more income and food diversification, therefore using technology, extension, and training.
