Who is the most hungry 


recent study from the USDA Economic Research Service looked at household food insecurity – and whether someone lacked access to enough food for a healthy, active life – and found huge disparities based on race and ethnicity. In the US in 2014, 1 in 10 whites were food insecure, while over 1 in 4 blacks and 1 in 5 Latinos were food insecure during that same time period. Access to stable, affordable housing and the opportunity to build financial and economic security can help address this. Find more resources for addressing these disparities on our website.
