The Connecticut Food Bank and Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, released the 2015 Map the Meal Gap study, which offers a detailed look at the food budget required to meet the needs of families struggling with hunger here in Connecticut.
According to the study, 13.6 percent, or 488,350 of Connecticut’s residents are food insecure, and it would take more than $253 million to meet the needs of Connecticut’s food insecure population, or $17.11 per week for each food insecure person.
