Jednym z głównych problemów była żywność. (Question)

Some advice please … can anyone tell me the difference, if any, between żwyność and jedzenie? Thanks!

Both “jedzenie” and “żywność” are best translated to “food”.

However, “żywność” sounds a tad more formal/official, and it’s the word you’ll usually see in supermarket aisles, ads, documents, historical texts, etc.

“Jedzenie” is more down-to-earth, and you’ll mostly hear it used in everyday conversations (outside of fixed phrases such as “zdrowa żywność” – healthy food).
