For information on hunger in our community and nationally, we have provided resources below. Last fiscal year, we were able to distribute over 14.2 million meals to those who are struggling with hunger in our community. Here are some other numbers you might want to share.
Map the Meal Gap
first published the Map the Meal Gap project in early 2011, with the generous support of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation and The Nielsen Company, to learn more about the face of hunger at the local level. In August, 2011, with the support of the ConAgra Foods Foundation, child food insecurity data was added to the project. The maps below reflect 2009-2011 data*, and will be updated every year with new data. Select a year and your state in our interactive map below and start learning more about the residents struggling with hunger in your community and the food banks that serve them.
