TTU Professor Samantha Hutson discusses the growing issue of food insecurity.
There have been many struggles inside the COVID pandemic. One of those is the growing food insecurity in the United States. One estimate says food insecurity rates across the nation for families with children rose by nearly two thirds during the pandemic. Close to 1 in 5 U.S. families reported in the winter of 2020 that they did not have enough. What is food insecurity? What can be done? Research is going on at Tennessee Tech to help with the issue. Samantha Hutson is a Tennessee Tech Human Ecology Professor.
