Fast Facts

◉ According to the NC Justice Center, nearly 590,000 households in North Carolina do not have enough food to eat each day.

◉ 191,760 of those people are in the Triangle.

◉ 27.3% of children in the Triangle are suffering from hunger right now.

◉ North Carolina has the 10th highest rate of food insecurity in the nation.

◉ When a family is “food insecure,” it means that not every family member has access to healthy and nutritious food choices to support an active and healthy lifestyle. When families experience food insecurity, they often must make difficult choices about the quality and amounts of food they are able to provide.
