Food Insecurity Rates

Using census tract food-insecurity data and Feeding America's Map the Meal Gap data set, we can estimate food insecurity rates by state and federal legislative districts and other sub-county population level sets like School Districts and Zip Code Tabulation Areas.

We are greatly appreciative to the work of the Feeding America research team that worked on developing the statistical model and dataset (Gundersen, C., A. Dewey, A. Crumbaugh, M. Kato & E. Engelhard. Map the Meal Gap 2018: A Report on County and Congressional District Food Insecurity and County Food Cost in the United States in 2016. Feeding America, 2018).
