Food Insecurity Rates

Using census tract food-insecurity data and Feeding America's Map the Meal Gap data set, we can estimate food insecurity rates by legislative district.

Some census tracts may overlap several legislative districts, so the totals may not exactly match population totals for each legislative district.

For your convenience, we have also provided the Congressional district food insecurity rates for the general population and for children.
