Follow this link to FRAC’s State of the States: Profiles of Hunger, Poverty, and Federal Nutrition Programs.

Data are available for every state and for the nation as a whole, and are designed to help states measure how they are doing in the effort to get key public nutrition programs to meet the needs of hungry people and improve the health and economic security of low-income families.

The data provided describe the extent of hunger and the use of nutrition programs, giving a snapshot of how well or badly each state is doing using the latest available data. The data can be used to encourage states and communities to improve policies and practices that would expand the reach of the federal nutrition programs.

Data were last updated September 2020.
