Food insecurity is defined as a lack of consistent access to adequate, nutritious food. People who are food insecure struggle to avoid hunger.
The majority of our neighbors facing food insecurity are children, older adults and working families. For some people, food insecurity may be a temporary challenge caused by job loss, pandemic, illness or other short-term setback.
Many Americans are only one paycheck away from facing food insecurity. According to America’s Map the Meal Gap Study, one in seven people will experience food insecurity this year.
