Although the economy is improving, millions of Americans continue to struggle. The USDA estimates that 41 million people, including nearly 13 million children, in the United States are food insecure as of 2016. That means 1 in 8 individuals (13%) and 1 in 6 children (18%) live in households without consistent access to adequate food. The prevalence of food insecurity is essentially unchanged from 2015, and rates remain higher than before the Great Recession in 2007.
