How many Americans live in poverty today?
As you might imagine, hunger is a problem that most often affects children from low-income families. The federal poverty level is the minimum amount of money a family needs each year to afford the necessities of life: food, clothing, shelter, and transportation.Over 38 million, or 12% of all Americans, according to 2018 data from the U.S. Census Bureau. 15 million of those were children.
What is the impact of the pandemic on children?
For years, the number of hungry children in the United States has been dropping, as the economy improved. Now, 1 in 4 children in the United States could face hunger this year because of the coronavirus. Why? Because millions of children have lost the healthy school meals they depend on. And just as the outbreak has closed schools, it has also closed many businesses, leaving millions of Americans out of work and struggling to afford food for their children.
