JUST DO BETTER
Our Just Do Better apparel donates to Feeding America. Since 2011, Feeding America has conducted our annual Map the Meal Gap study to improve our understanding of food insecurity and food costs at the local level. The most recent release reflects 2020 estimates of food insecurity for the overall population and children at multiple geographic levels, including counties, food bank service areas, congressional districts and states.
For the first time, the study also examines differences in local food insecurity rates by race and ethnicity. Feeding America is committed to addressing persistent racial disparities in food insecurity and these estimates will help fill a gap in understanding local-level inequities. Recognizing that sample sizes are smaller and uncertainty is greater the further these data are disaggregated, we believe that understanding even broad historical variations within and across populations and places is critical.
Only then can we develop effective strategies to address the root causes of food insecurity and change the systems, policies and practices that put people at risk of hunger.
