"More than 35 million Americans live in households that struggle against hunger" (Food Research and Action Center, 2019). The last time the White House addressed food insecurity was 50 years ago (NPR, 2021). We need a national conversation to deal with food insecurity now!
Why is this important?
In communities across the country, the lines at food pantries are stretching longer and longer, and there's no clear end in sight. But now, with economic instability, new estimates point to some of the worst rates of food insecurity in the United States in years. It's a crisis that's testing families, communities and the social safety net in ways that may have seemed unthinkable before the pandemic began (NPR, 2020).
