Percentage of households that are food in secure

- In 2014, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated that 14 percent of U.S. households were classified as food insecure, and just over 19.2 percent of all households with children were food insecure.

- An increase in the minimum wage significantly improves food security, with larger increases for African-American and Latino, high school graduate, and single-parent households.

- If the federal minimum wage were raised to $15.00 per hour by 2023, almost 1.2 million American households would achieve food security—a major impact on the epidemic of hunger nationwide.
