Currently, in South Florida, there are more than 1.2 million food insecure individuals, and one in nine individuals in South Florida remain uncertain about where they will get their next meal due to inflation, the strained supply chain, rising fuel prices and increased housing costs, among other factors.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service Household Food Security in the United States in 2022 Report, the number of people living in food insecure households in the United States in 2022 increased to 44 million, including 13 million children.
