Child food insecurity
Definitions:Number of children experiencing food insecurity and percentage of children who are food insecure by county as reported by the Map the Meal Gap. https://map.feedingamerica.org/
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 children are those children living in households experiencing food insecurity.
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.
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.
