How has COVID-19 impacted food insecurity?
Even before the pandemic struck, food insecurity plagued this nation. According to research conducted by Feeding America, one in six children in the United States faces food insecurity. 750,000 children may be food insecure in New York City and Los Angeles alone. Ignoring the burdens of COVID-19, hunger is a problem that needs to be solved urgently.
