The information provided in this section describes the extent of hunger and food insecurity and the use of nutrition programs for the United States as a whole and for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia, giving a snapshot of how well or badly each state is doing in using available tools to meet the needs of hungry people and improve the health and economic security of low-income families.
This online tool allows users to access FRAC’s database of demographic and nutrition program measures to analyze how states are using the key public nutrition programs to reach more people in need and to provide more adequate benefits. Users may compare up to three years of data in any state. The tool is designed to provide basic data in a single source, and is the same information that is published in FRAC’s State of the States report. Online information is updated quarterly for any new annual statistics that have been reported in that timeframe.
