Food insecurity describes a household’s inability to provide enough food for every person to live an active, healthy life. Food insecurity is one way we can measure and assess the risk of hunger. In the United States currently, 1 in 8 people struggle with hunger and 1 in 6 children struggle with hunger. Feeding America, Map the Meal Gap estimated 13.9 percent of Florida’s population and 20.7 percent of Florida’s children experienced food insecurity during 2016.

Find data for your county regarding food insecurity and food insecurity among children in CHARTS’ Health Equity Profile.
