Definitions: Average cost per meal by county as reported by the Map the Meal Gap. https://map.feedingamerica.org/

The average weekly dollar amount food-secure individuals report spending on food, as estimated in the Current Population Survey, divided by 21 (assuming three meals a day, seven days a week).

Each year of data represents a standalone snapshot of food insecurity in each state and county and caution should be used before comparing percentages year-by-year. Data starting in 2011 had a slightly altered methodology and should not be directly compared to prior years. Data methodology was altered again in 2018, making data not directly comparable to prior years.
