Feeding America has released The Child Food Insecurity 2012 Study, showing that food insecurity among children has decreased four percent in the area.
Food insecurity is a lack of access to enough food to live an active and healthy lifestyle. The four percent decrease is in the 19 county service area of the second harvest community food bank. CEO for Second Harvest David Davenport says each year they distribute millions of pounds of food through their programs. Davenport says this food comes from many different sources, including some from the U.S. Government. The study revealed that 1 in 5 children under the age of 18 are still insecure in the service area, and Second Harvest Community Food Bank is looking to close this gap even more by next year.
