Who are the 1 in 5? “2014 Hunger: Alameda County Uncovered”

Last summer, the results of "Hunger in America" -- a quadrennial study commissioned by Feeding America, the national network of food banks -- found that Alameda County Community Food Bank now serves 1 in 5 county residents. That figure, however, was just one among a host of shocking findings, which together paint an unprecedented picture of hunger and poverty in our neighborhoods.

Such valuable data informs -- and evolves -- our work, enabling us to cater more directly to the needs and particular hardships our clients face, and to engage an even bolder coalition of partners and advocates in the movement to end hunger. That's why we're thrilled to share the key findings with you, in 2014 Hunger: Alameda County Uncovered, a Food Bank-produced and -designed publication!

From the unique relationship between hunger and health outcomes among clients, to the coping strategies employed by working families just to make ends meet, the report offers an in-depth look at the state of food insecurity in Alameda County, and how the community can help.
