Hunger Resources

Food insecurity, a condition in which households lack access to adequate food because of limited money or other resources, is a leading health and nutrition issue in the United States. In 2013 almost fifty million Americans (14.3 percent) were food insecure. 

 

About one-third of these were at a more serious level known as “very low food security.” The fact that so many people are food insecure is important in and of itself, but potentially more concerning are the possible negative health consequences of food insecurity.
