Food insecurity is a growing concern for many people in the United States. Prior to COVID-19, it was estimated that 11% of households in America were food insecure and lacked consistent access to enough food and nutritious options. However, as Americans practice social distancing and quarantine, many are faced with new challenges accessing and affording food. Recent surveys found that nearly 40% of households now report moderate to high levels of food insecurity and 20% of children are experiencing food insecurity.
