Hunger is Here. 52,000 children, families and seniors suffer from food insecurity in Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas. Of these people, 1 in 5 are children. Being food insecure means a person doesn’t know where their next meal will come from. Many of these individuals have limited access to food because they live in food deserts which adds to their meal gap. A meal gap is the difference between a person’s food resources and what they actually need to sustain a healthy, fulfilling life.
