863,390 Virginians struggle to afford enough nutritious throughout the year, according to Feeding America’s annual ‘Map the Meal Gap’ study.
The study also finds that 247,470 children live in food insecure households, approximately 13% of all children in the Commonwealth.
Every city and county in Virginia is home to people who worry about where their next meal will come from. Virginia’s food banks are working hard each and every day to close the meal gap in partnership with communities large and small.
