Yesterday, the Food Research & Action Center released a report on Food Hardship in the United States on the National, State and Local level. Food hardship was measured using the survey question, “Have there been times in the past 12 months when you did not have enough money to buy food that you or your family needed?” According to the report, things are getting better in the United States. From 2013 to 2015 there has been a significant decline in the rate of food hardship in the nation.
