Map the Meal Gap 2016

Posted on

Feeding America last week released Map the Meal Gap 2016, a report that measures food insecurity and food costs at the county and congressional district level. The report finds that food insecurity – defined as being unable to provide enough food for everyone in a household in the past year – ranges from a low of 4 percent in Loudoun County, Virginia, to a high of nearly 40 percent in Jefferson County, Mississippi. Children are at greater risk of hunger than the general population, according to the report, with Native American children and children living in the South most vulnerable.
