Food poverty line was calculated using food energy intake procedure. Non-food poverty line, total poverty line, capita poverty line, poverty divide and the severity of poverty was also calculated in the study area. Results indicated that approximately 32% of samples were below the poverty line. Also, the results showed that there is a statistically significant difference between poor and non-poor people in some subjects such as age, using health care facilities, owning tractor, house, tap water, natural piped gas, kitchen and bath room, educated peoples of the family, welfare and social capital.
