Feeding America has published the Map the Meal Gap project since 2011, thanks to the generous support of The Howard G. Buffett Foundation, Nielsen, and the Conagra Brands Foundation, to learn more about the face of hunger at the local level.

You can learn more about how we got the map data, read reports of overall and child food insecurity from previous years, and even access data tables by county and congressional district for each state.
