*Hunger in America Facts:

  • Nearly 34 million people (1 in 10), including more than 9 million children (1 in 8), were living in food insecure households in 2021.
  • Black people are 2.9 times as likely, and Latinos are 2.5 times as likely to live in food-insecure households than white people.

Everyone should be able to gather with family or loved ones and share a meal – especially during the holidays. But there are millions of people in the U.S. who may not be able to put food on the table.

Feeding America is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization and its mission is to advance change in America by ensuring equitable access to nutritious food for all in partnership with food banks, policymakers, supporters, and the communities it serves.

Through a network of 200 food banks, 21 statewide food bank associations and over 60,000 partner agencies, food pantries and meal programs, the Feeding America network provides food and support to more than 40 million people each year.During this holiday season and beyond, please support Feeding America in helping communities in need across the country  by pledging to volunteer, making a donation or hosting a virtual holiday food drive.
