Map the Meal Gap

Map the Meal Gap is Feeding America’s landmark research project that produces county-level food insecurity and child food insecurity estimates by income band and estimates the food budget shortfall that people report they experience.

It accomplishes this by aggregating food insecurity data, food budget shortfall, cost of food index, and national average food cost. To learn more about the methodology, please click here.

In addition to county-level food insecurity estimates, the national map also produces food insecurity rates by Congressional district. Please click here to find the Meal Gap in Wisconsin and in your congressional district. For more detailed county-by-county data, please contact us.
