1 in 5 Kids in Jackson County Face Food Insecurity at Home

Nearly 17% of our community experiences food insecurity and is not sure when their next meal will come from.  For parents raising families on little income, nutritious foods are a luxury they cannot afford and they are making hard choices between rent, utilities, and food.  For many, there is the added cost of transportation because they live in areas that have limited access to food.
