New maps and data now available for Food Insecurity Rate indicator from Feeding America.

New food insecurity rate data for 2013 are now available (replacing data for 2012). Food insecurity refers to USDA’s measure of lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members and limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate foods. Data is from Feeding America’s Map the Meal Gap program, which estimates food insecurity using 2009-13 data.
