Lacking access to healthy, nutritious food is a huge problem for Latinos and other disadvantaged Americans across the country.

This issue has only been exasperated over the past year as the coronavirus pandemic has rocked communities—especially those that face systemic inequities—to the core. Despite many businesses, civic leaders, advocates, and nonprofit organizations’ work to make a difference has helped many, immediate action is needed in order for children and adults to consume healthy foods.

Most importantly, spreading the word about this significant problem is one way to make progress.

Together we can help bring an end to food insecurity in America!
