Abstract: In 2018, 2.7 million households—7.1 percent of U.S. households with children—experienced food insecurity among children. While the national rate of food insecurity among children has declined since 2011, rates in 2018 for households headed by single mothers and by Black, non-Hispanic adults were more than twice the national rate.
