The latest data from the United States Department of Agriculture
shows that nearly 49 million Americans experience “food insecurity” each
year – that is, they’re not sure where they’ll find their next meal.
That staggering number includes nearly 17 million children.

 Feeding America provides low-income individuals and families with the
fuel to survive and even thrive. As the nation’s leading domestic
hunger-relief charity, our network members supply food to more than 37
million Americans each year, including 14 million children and 3 million
seniors. Serving the entire United States, more than 200 member food
banks support 61,000 agencies that address hunger in all of its forms.
