The Nobel Peace prize was recently awarded to the World Food Program for its global efforts to achieve a world without hunger. At the same time, the devastating economic impacts of COVID-19 have led to more hungry families around the globe, including here in the United States. Food insecurity is defined as a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. COVID-19 has led to a surge in US households experiencing various levels of food insecurity. In 2018, 12% of American households reported that they were food insecure, but this rate has nearly doubled since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Minority households and households with children have been the most impacted by food insecurity, with school closures throughout the country preventing many children from receiving free school lunches they need.
