United Way knows that hunger is a pervasive problem across the United States.
Hunger means more than missing a meal. For 1 in 8 families, it often means having to choose between buying groceries or paying rent. And the effects can be devastating – from poor health and malnourishment to impaired child development and overall poor well-being.
In 2019, we discovered that 41 Million Americans are hungry or food insecure. In the uncertain times of COVID-19, even more people are finding themselves unsure of where their next meal is coming from.
