Many rural and farm communities — the very places where crops are grown to feed the nation — face hunger. It seems impossible, but in lands of plenty, hunger pains can be the sharpest.
2.4 million rural households face hunger. Three-quarters of the districts with the highest rates of food insecurity are in rural areas 86% of the districts with the highest rates of child food insecurity are rural.
MILLIONS OF RURAL CHILDREN STRUGGLE WITH HUNGER
People who live in rural areas often face hunger at higher rates, in part because of the unique challenges living remotely presents. These challenges include job opportunities that are more concentrated in low-wage industries and higher rates of unemployment and underemployment. This can make hunger in rural areas a unique challenge.
