According to a study conducted by Noura Insolera, at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research, families in the United States are experiencing higher levels of chronic food insecurity in comparison to 20 years ago. The study analyzed data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics and concluded that one in five American households experienced food insecurity in 2019. The study also found that food insecurity was more prevalent among households with children, households headed by racial and ethnic minorities, and households with lower levels of education and income.
