Most U.S. households have consistent, dependable access to enough food for active, healthy living – they are food secure. But a minority of American households experience food insecurity at times during the year, meaning that their access to adequate food is limited by a lack of money and other resources. Food and nutrition assistance programs of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) increase food security by providing low-income households access to food, a healthful diet, and nutrition education. This book presents statistics from the survey covering households’ food security, food expenditures, and use of food and nutrition assistance programs in 2012. (Imprint: Novinka )
