This pandemic exposed what we already knew — hunger does not affect us all equally. Systemic inequities ensured the fault lines of our economy only widened. In our latest Hunger Report, we share our latest survey results where more than half of respondents have lost work due to the pandemic and half of them turned to us for the first time. The majority of respondents also have yet to recover, which is an ongoing trend as there is no vaccine for hunger. Read our latest Hunger Report for more details.
