Millions of Households Struggled with Food Insecurity in 2012

Federal nutrition programs, like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, National School Lunch and Breakfast Program and the Special Supplemental Women Infants and Children Program, have provided a bridge for citizens during this time of economic downturn. Nevertheless, the percentage of those that are food insecure still remains high.

The USDA Economic Research Service collects annual data on the number of food insecure households, defined as those that experience lack of access to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members at some point during the year. The most recent report indicates that in 2012, 14.5% of all households were food insecure, equating to more than 17 million households.

Federal nutrition programs provide basic food assistance to millions of Americans. A comprehensive Farm Bill and the child nutrition programs that set school lunch and breakfast nutrition standards help ensure access to food for millions of food insecure Americans. These programs are public policy priorities for the Academy, which is committed to advocating for food access and security for all Americans.
