This study explores the association of land tenure to food access in selected villages in the municipality of Pigcawayan situated in the North Cotabato province of the Mindanao peninsula, Philippines. There were 56 farm tenants that were interviewed in the study through snowball sampling. Using the chi square test of association, results showed that a significant association exists between zero harvest payment agreement and confidence in tenancy with days without enough food at alpha 0.05. A significant association between zero harvest payment agreement and confidence in tenancy with experience hunger with no money and days without enough food was also demonstrated at 0.10 alpha. Lastly, the study revealed that while the farmers can eat three times a day, their access to food can only be sustained if they would continuously work, even on land recovery days, in order to generate enough income to buy food for household consumption.
