Due to historic and systemic racism black and Hispanic children are going hungry at even higher rates. As of February 2021, more than 1 in 5 Black and Hispanic adults with children said their households were not getting enough to eat compared with 1 in 10 white adults with children. The majority of households experiencing hunger struggle to put food on the table even with full- or part-time employment. Meaning that people aren’t making enough money to buy necessities and living wages need to be raised higher, so people can actually live.
