“Hunger is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.” Winston Churchill

Data-driven decisions allows us to be more in tune with the communities we serve and gauge our effectiveness. Dr. Erin McDonald, VP of Center for Research and Learning at Feeding America and her team are leading the Map the Meal Gap study across the nation. Feeding America has undertaken the Map the Meal Gap analysis to continue learning about how the face of food insecurity can vary at the local level. By better understanding variations in local need, communities can develop more targeted strategies to better reach people struggling with hunger.
