New data suggest that over 50 million people in the U.S. are experiencing food insecurity due to the global pandemic and economic crisis. U.S. food insecurity rates have doubled with Black and Latinx families, who are now more than twice as likely to struggle with food as White families.
And yet, despite the enormity of this problem, ending hunger in in this country is within our grasp. We have the resources and we know the right tools to use to make hunger a thing of the past—what's missing are bold leaders who understand the systems that contribute to hunger who can lead the changes necessary to eliminate hunger for good.
