Facts about poverty and hunger in America

Even in the world’s greatest food-producing nation, children and adults face poverty and hunger in every county across America.

  • More than 38 million people are living in poverty in America. In 2019, most families living in poverty earn less than $25,750 per year.

  • More than 37 million people struggle with hunger in the United States, including more than 11 million children.

  • A household that is food insecure has limited or uncertain access to enough food to support a healthy life.

  • Children are more likely to face food insecurity than any other group in the United States. 

  • More than half (56%) of food-insecure households participated in at least one of the major federal food assistance program — the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly Food Stamps); the National School Lunch Program and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (often called WIC).
