For people facing hunger, poverty is just one issue
40 million Americans struggle with hunger, a number nearly equal to the 40.6 million officially living in poverty. Based on annual income, 72% of the households the Feeding America network served in 2014 lived at or below the federal poverty level with a median annual household income of $9,175.
Though they often go hand in hand, poverty is just one of several issues tied to hunger. Unemployment, household assets, and even demographics can also make it difficult to access the nutritious food people need to thrive.
