Who Goes Hungry in the Big Bend?

Many people are surprised to learn that Second Harvest’s 11-county service area in the Big Bend has the highest level of food insecurity in Florida, at 18.9%, or 1 in 5 adults and 1 in 5 children. Almost 100,000 of our neighbors, including families, children and seniors, experience hunger on a regular basis.
