We all know what it’s like to feel hungry after skipping a meal. Hunger is a feeling that can be different for everyone, but food insecurity measures the conditions that can lead to hunger.
Food insecurity describes a household’s inability to provide enough food for every person to live an active and healthy life. One “bad month” can be enough to plunge a household into food insecurity. Lay-offs at work, unexpected car maintenance or an accident on the job can suddenly force a family to choose between buying food and paying bills. Working families across America face countless situations that can result in food insecurity and hunger.
