Hunger is not just about calories...it's about health.
Food is expensive and fresh, healthy options are even more so. Families frequently are forced to choose quantity (filling up bellies) over quality (healthier, nutrient-rich options).
The connection between hunger and health is clear: Obesity, diabetes, and other diet-related illnesses are higher in food-insecure households.
