17.7 percent of adults experienced food insecurity in their household in May

Urban Institute researchers used the May 14–27 Coronavirus Tracking Survey to study families experiencing food insecurity during the pandemic. Their findings are sobering: 17.7 percent of nonelderly adults reported that their household had experienced food insecurity in the past 30 days. For parents living with children in their household, 21.8 percent reported food insecurity during the past 30 days. Disparities in food insecurity by race and ethnicity are also very apparent: 27.1 percent of Latinx adults and 27.0 percent of Black adults reported that their households experienced food insecurity, compared with 13.5 percent for white adults’ households. #covid-19 #foodsecurity #racialequity
