Prior to COVID-19, even in the midst of a strong economy with a
record streak of job growth and low unemployment rates, in 2018
nearly 8 million (4 percent) American adults reported that members
of their households sometimes or often did not have enough to eat.
According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Household Pulse
Survey (collected April 23, 2020 through July 21, 2020), during
COVID-19, that number has surged to 26–29 million, or 11 percent of
adults. Who are the hungry in America today? This report provides
a description of who didn’t have enough to eat.
