Families in Need

Over 1.5 million Georgians are living in poverty according to the latest US Census Bureau American Community Survey. Oftentimes mothers and fathers have to choose between buying food or paying for medical care, childcare or other monthly bills. Hunger is not limited to only certain people. Children and adults of all ages are susceptible to the anxiety and fear of being without food. The USDA defines food insecurity as the lack of access to adequate food resulting from the lack of money and other resources; this means they don’t always know where they will find their next meal.

The following statistics were compiled by the staff of Atlanta Community Food Bank, a network member of Feeding America.
