According to Feeding America, that 42.2 million Americans lived in food insecure households, including 13.1 million children. Poverty in the United States is only one of many factors associated with food insecurity. In fact, higher unemployment, lower household assets, and certain demographic characteristics also lead to a lack of access to adequate, nutritious food.

Many New Yorkers are paid at or near the minimum wage. As a result, in 2012-2014, one million New York State residents lived in households that included at least one person working but food insecure or, in other words, were unable to afford enough food.

Did you know…

The number of children living in extreme poverty – roughly $9,500 a year for a family of three – rose an alarming 32% from 2008 to 2012. For 81% of these families, housing costs consumed too large a share of family budgets, leaving less for other necessities such as food, clothing, or transportation. For those with young children, 24% of their income went for childcare in licensed day care centers. This means roughly one-third of New Jersey children live in families earning too little to meet their needs. Source: http://www.endhungernj.org/about-nj-hunger
