During COVID-19, 1 in 5 Latino and Black Households with Children are Food Insufficient

This issue brief shares data from the Census Bureau Household Pulse Survey that indicate that 19% of Hispanic households and 22% of Black households were food insufficient this summer compared to 14% of all households and 9% of white households. Food insufficiency puts children at higher risk of health, academic, behavioral, and emotional problems. The brief suggests that federal and state governments should offer supports that were offered through Families First Coronavirus Response Act and other income and housing supports. This resource supports the COVID-19 response.
