Report Pinpoints Rates of ‘Food Insecurity’ in San Diego
On Monday, Feeding America San Diego released a study on rates of "food insecurity," which measures the availability of and access to food. According to the study, each year more than 440,000 San Diego County residents experience hunger, and 73.6 million meals are missed. The study also found that nearly 50% of residents who have difficulty affording food do not meet income requirements for CalFresh, the state's food stamps program.
