No One Can Thrive on an Empty Stomach

37 million people face hunger in the U.S. today – including more than 11 million children and nearly 5.4 million seniors. Hunger knows no boundaries – it touches every community in the U.S.That means families do not know where their next meal is coming from. People struggle to get by because of underemployment, stagnant wages, and rising costs of living.

  • According to the USDA’s 2019 Household Food Insecurity in the United States report, more than 37 million people in the United States struggle with hunger.
  • In 2018, 14.3 million American households were food insecure with limited or uncertain access to enough food.
  • Households with children are more likely to experience food insecurity. Currently, more than 11 million children live in food-insecure households.
  • Every community in the country is home to families who struggle with food insecurity including rural and suburban communities.

Hunger can affect people from all walks of life. Many Americans are one job loss or medical crisis away from food insecurity – but some people, including children and seniors, may be at greater risk of hunger than others.
