Food Insecurity Persists Post-Pandemic

ECONOMIC AND POLICY INSIGHTS

Food insecurity is increasing in New York, with one-in-nine households (11.3% or 875,000 families) unable to get enough food at some point during 2020 through 2022 because they lacked money or other resources. Nationally, food insecurity increased for the first time in over a decade to 11.2% during 2020 through 2022. With the end of the pandemic, many of the enhancements to federal safety net programs also ended. Additional federal and state efforts are needed to address food insecurity.


State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli quote: "It's important to have transparency so New Yorkers are empowered with information they need to hold their elected officials accountable."
