FRAC Releases New Findings On U.S. Hunger

The Food Research and Action Center reported today that nearly one in five households report an inability to afford enough food, and the the SNAP Benefit boost is keeping the food hardship rate from skyrocketing even further.

Almost 18 percent of Americans reported in September that they had struggled to afford enough food to feed themselves and their families at times over the last 12 months, according to FRAC’s analysis of data from the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index. FRAC released the findings, together with the Coalition on Human Needs and Witnesses to Hunger, in a Press Release and on a conference call with reporters today.
