United States

Even though the United States is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, there are many children and families who are facing food insecurity, and it is not always easy to see. They may live in a home but cannot afford electricity or regular meals. For many children, summers are especially difficult. During the school year, schools across the country offer free and reduced-price meals. Unfortunately, those meals end when summer starts. Children facing poverty in the US may not know when they will have their next meal or if they will go to bed hungry.
