An estimated 14.0 percent of American households were food insecure at least some time during the year in 2014, meaning they lacked access to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members. In Texas, the number is higher:

  • Over 27% of children under 18 in Dallas live in households that have experienced food insecurity in the past year. Source: Feeding America
  • Dallas County ranks 5.9 out of 10 on the Food Environment Index (FEI). The FEI combines two data points – the percentage of population that is low-income with low access to grocery stores, and the percentage of population that did not have access to reliable food sources in the past year.
