Food security situation has changed in new era, which challenges the traditional food security theory. Food security index is constructed in this paper including five dimensions of quality security, quantity security, ecological security, economic security, and resource and environmental security to match the new concept and goal of food security in new era. Meanwhile, 14 indicators are selected to evaluate the evolution and current situation of China's food security. The result shows that China has paid more attention to food quality security and economic security, but less attention to quality safety, ecological safety, and resource and environmental safety. Finally, suggestions are put forward to ensure China's food security with the development of macro strategies, such as rural revitalization, healthy China, and supply-side reform.
