What is Food Insecurity?
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines food insecurity as a lack of of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life.
The USDA estimates that 37 million people, including more than 11 million children, in the US were food insecure in 2018. That means 1 in 9 individuals (11.5%) and 1 in 7 children (15.2%) lived in households without consistent access to adequate food.
