Food Insecurity in Households with Children: Prevalence, Severity, and Household Characteristics, 2010-11
Alisha Coleman-Jensen (au); William McFall (au); Mark Nord (au)
This report examines the prevalence and severity of food insecurity in households with children by selected household characteristics. An estimated 79% of households with children were food secure throughout the year in 2011, meaning that all the household members had consistent access to adequate food for active, healthy lives. The remainder (nearly 21%) were food insecure at some time during the year, including 10% in which children were food insecure and 1% in which one or more children experienced very low food security äóî the most severe food-insecure condition measured by USDA. This study shows that in 2010-11, 75% of households with food-insecure children had one or more adults in the labor force, including 60% with a full-time worker. More than half of households with food-insecure children included an adult with education beyond high school. Federal food and nutrition assistance programs provided benefits to 84% of low-income food-insecure households with children in 2010-11. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
