COVID Impact on Child Food Insecurity - Research & Blog Post

Children are Experiencing Food Insecurity at Higher Rates in Suburban Midwest Counties Due to COVID-19

Children Food Insecurity Map

In my work for Farm 2 Facts, I researched how COVID impacted child food insecurity across the Midwest. Children experiencing food insecurity often face serious developmental issues impacting them for their entire lives. This research culminated in a Farm 2 Facts blog post containing a thematic choropleth map.
