Two years after the covid- 19  pandemic millions more children in America are struggling with hunger. Since March 2020, food insecurity rates have risen by nearly two-thirds. Black and Hispanic children have been disproportionately impacted and are twice as likely as white children to face hunger in America. There are roughly 17 million children struggling with hunger in America, 6 million more than before the pandemic. And 2.7 million more families are going hungry. 30 million kids in the U.S depend on school meals, and when schools shut down during the pandemic it led to more hungry kids.
