HUNGER IN AMERICA

MORE THAN 37
MILLION PEOPLE
 in the United States struggle with hunger according to the USDA's 2019 Household Food Insecurity in the United States report.

Many households that experience food insecurity DO NOT QUALIFY FOR FEDERAL NUTRITION PROGRAMS and need to rely on their local food banks and other hunger relief organizations for support.

Currently, MORE THAN 11 MILLION CHILDREN live in food-insecure households. Households with children are more likely to experience food insecurity. 

HUNGER TERMS

FOOD INSECURITY 

Food insecurity refers to USDA’s measure of lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members and limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate foods. Food-insecure households are not necessarily food insecure all the time. Food insecurity may reflect a household’s need to make trade-offs between important basic needs, such as housing or medical bills, and purchasing nutritionally adequate foods.

FOOD DESERT

 

A food desert is an area that has limited access to affordable and nutritious food, in contrast with an area with higher access to supermarkets or vegetable shops with fresh foods, which is called a food oasis.

FOOD SECURITY

Access to enough food for an active, healthy life. Food Security includes at a minimum: (1) the ready availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods and (2) an assured ability to acquire acceptable foods in socially acceptable ways.  That is, without resorting to emergency food supplies, scavenging, stealing, or other coping strategies.
