Hunger & Poverty Statistics
Although related, food insecurity and poverty are not the same. Unemployment rather than poverty is a stronger predictor of food insecurity.
In 2009, 43.6 million people (14.3 percent) were in poverty.
In 2010, 46.2 million people were in poverty.
In 2010, 48.8 million Americans lived in food insecure households,
32.6 million adults and 16.2 million children. Feeding America

For the month of December every "Seven Years of Plenty" Book I sell, I will donate to Feeding America. So many people need help right now, and it is nice to know we will be helping someone have food in their pantry.
