FAMILIES STRUGGLE TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE


Nationally, one in six households reported they struggled to afford to buy food in the past 12 months, according to a new report. That’s down significantly from 2013 when nearly 1 in five households (18.9%) reported struggling to find food. In 31 states at least one in seven households (14.3%) said that they did not have enough money to buy food at some point in the past year.
