Feedback form is now closed.
Food insecurity is the lack of access to affordable and nutritionally balanced foods. As of 2018, approximately 40 million people are still at risk of hunger in the U.S., of which 12 million were children. As current students attending public schools, the presenters know the impact this can have on an individual student's academic success, general health, and brain development. The project aims to identify and explore factors of food insecurity in schools and investigate current and possible solutions.
