By definition, food insecurity is "the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe food."

almost 50 million americans

live in food insecure households. That's 15.5% of the population.

Arkansas is #50 

in overall food insecurity with 21.2% of people being food insecure (2011-2013). Next worst? Mississippi at 21.1%. Texas is at 18.0%, Missouri at 16.9% and Ohio is at 16.0%. More info at Mind the Meal Gap.

35% of single mother households

are affected by food insecurity. Social factors including unequal opportunity for education and employment, domestic violence, inequitable wage compensation, insufficient child support, and lack of access to affordable healthcare and housing make it difficult for mothers to put and keep food on the table.
