25 Percent of Black Households Face Food Insecurity

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has released figures revealing a disheartening fact. Food insecurity is defined as struggling to put food on the table and often not knowing where your next meal will come from, and in 2011, 25.1 percent of Black families in America were declared food insecure. While the economy seems to be recovering, African American households with children are still hurting.

African-American households with children were hit harder than the U.S. population as a whole. While 20.6 percent of all households with children were food insecure, 29.2 percent of African-American households with children were food insecure.
