Map the Meal Gap

Map the Meal Gap is Feeding America’s landmark research project that produces county-level food insecurity and child food insecurity estimates by income band and estimates the food budget shortfall that people report they experience.

It accomplishes this by aggregating food insecurity data, food budget shortfall, cost of food index, and national average food cost. To learn more about the methodology, please click here.

In addition to county-level food insecurity estimates, the national map also produces food insecurity rates by Congressional district.

Please click on Wisconsin in the map below and your home county to see what the food insecurity looks like in your county. You can also sort by child food insecurity rates and also by Congressional districts.
