According to the Wyoming Hunger Initiative website, food insecurity affects 12 million children in the U.S. and about 23,500 children in Wyoming.

Research has shown that children who suffer from food insecurity—even once in their lifetime—demonstrate poorer overall health 10-15 years later. In addition to health outcomes, food insecurity has an impact on academic achievement, graduation rates, and economic well-being.

Wyoming Hunger Initiative knows that childhood hunger is a problem that can be solved, but it must first be understood.
