Map the Meal Gap: Food Insecurity in your county | Geography Education | Scoop.it
Visit Feeding America, the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Feeding America's helps provide food to over 37 millions Americans each year.


Seth Dixon's insight:

Food insecurity is an important issue in human geography that, like so many things, impacts people is different ways depending on where they live.  This interactive map is a great tool for student projects, and local comparisons.  This is also a great tool to build geographic empathy and (for American students) to see that issues of dire poverty aren't only in the developing world.
