Map the Meal Gap 2015 -- Hunger Affects Every Part of of Our State

Feeding America has published its 2015 Map the Meal Gap Study, an annual report that provides county-level estimates of food insecurity in the United States.
The research shows that 15.5 % of Mainers, or 206,000 people, are food insecure, meaning that at times they lack access to adequate food for a healthy lifestyle.
Feeding America has created an interactive map that allows viewing of how widespread hunger is in our communities.  You can see the map at

GSFB Network is a blog for partner agencies of Good Shepherd Food Bank focused on feeding Maine's hungry.
