Hunger In Maryland

Hunger Does Not Discriminate

Food insecurity is a complex issue, and, while statistics can help us understand it to a degree, it’s important to be able to look at hunger from multiple angles. Hunger in Maryland impacts individuals and families statewide, and it can manifest itself in different ways. For children, living with hunger can often lead to slower development and poor educational performance; for adults it may translate to missed career opportunities; and for seniors it may result in a weaker immune system. In order to become a voice for the movement against hunger, it’s important to first gain an understanding of the issue at hand.
