New Report Finds 16 Percent of All Children in Nebraska Don't Have Consistent Access to Meals
Date:11/15/2007

aho, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee and Utah. Washington, D.C. also has a child food insecurity rate above 20 percent.

"This study shows pockets of vulnerability which will help America's Second Harvest and the ConAgra Foods Foundation's 'Nourish Today, Flourish Tomorrow' partnership develop an overall strategy to end child hunger in America," said Escarra. "Identifying areas of greatest need can help in targeting Food Stamp program outreach efforts, placement of Kids Cafes and BackPack programs, grants and the expansion of Summer Food Service program sites."

This report shows that child hunger is not a rare event -- is not limited to the inner-city or hardscrabble rural areas. Child hunger exists in every state, and in nearly every community. We hope that people will be motivated to help end this crisis."

Child Food Insecurity in the United States: 2003 -- 2005 analyzes data collected by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Economic Research Service (ERS) over a three-year period.

The state-by-state study was sponsored by the ConAgra Foods Foundation as part of its "Nourish Today, Flourish Tomorrow" program focused on child hunger and nutrition education. ConAgra Foods is a major donor to America's Second Harvest, whose network of food banks and food-rescue organizations serves 25 million Americans every year.

The ConAgra Foods Foundation program is the largest corporate initiative solely dedicated to fighting hunger through America's Second Harvest. ConAgra Foods contributed more than $20 million in funding to America's Sec
