The U.S. Department of Agriculture defines food insecurity as “a household-level economic and social condition of limited or uncertain access to adequate food.”

According to Feeding America’s recently released annual “Map the Meal Gap” report, almost one in four Arizona youth are food-insecure. Statewide, that equates to nearly 371,000 children. The food insecurity rate for youth nationally is 17.5 percent, while the rate in Arizona is 22.7 percent.
