As of 2012, the most recent year for which data are available, there were about 49 million Americans who, sadly, describe themselves as “food insecure,” meaning they have limited access to sufficient amounts of food, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Interviews with several food banks around the country suggest things haven’t really improved since then. A new report from the hunger relief charity ‘Feeding America’ throws the nation’s struggle with hunger into an even starker light. The report, titled “Map the Meal Gap 2014,” breaks the USDA’s data down county by county, giving a more nuanced picture of food insecurity. As the Interactive report below reveals, HuffPo notes that there are 16 counties in the U.S. with more than 100,000 “food insecure” children — a number you might expect to see in a developing country rather than the world’s wealthiest nation.
