Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
First, from your link:

0-14 years: 43% (male 1,558,730; female 1,548,175)

With 43% of the population under 14 years old crunch time hasn't, again, happened.

From here [html of a pdf]:

Rwanda is definitely on the edge of food insecurity.  FAO (2007) reports an average per capita calorie intake in the years from 2002-2004 of around 2,100, which is just the minimum of intake for humans, and does certainly not allow any downward variation or distributional biases without jeopardizing food security ...

At this point the food situation in Rwanda is not desperate.
