How Inflation Is Causing More Food Insecurity In 2022
Experiencing food insecurity can be stressful and scary, but the good news is that there are ways to get help. There are several government programs, both federal and on the state level, that can help if you’re not able to access food. “For example, many states have issued COVID-related funds to provide free lunches for students. Those families who qualify for free/reduced meals could free up some dollars for groceries and other necessities, like school supplies,” says McCreary.
“If you’re someone who faces food insecurity, I encourage you to check out the US Department of Agriculture’s website, where you can search for relevant programs available to you.”
