Just Released: County Nutrition & Food Insecurity Profiles!
11.19.2013 CFPA's County Nutrition & Food Insecurity Profiles provide local data describing the need for nutritious, affordable food and the extent to which the federal nutrition programs can help address that need.
The food insecurity data included in the profiles show at least 4 million low-income Californians struggled to afford enough food in 2011-12.
"While more than four million food-insecure Californians may seem like an overwhelming number, strong public policies once built a safety net in this country that virtually eliminated hunger. Our local, state, and federal leaders have the power to ensure that all Californians are well nourished each and every day of the year. We are calling on those leaders to act," says George Manalo-LeClair, Executive Director of CFPA.
