The U.S. Department of Agriculture defines food insecurity as the inability to access the food necessary to live a healthy, active life. Understanding the scope of food insecurity experienced within New Hampshire is important for informing the provision of nutrition assistance services throughout the state. Identifying subpopulations that are at greater risk for food insecurity can help nutrition assistance providers better target their resources to address food access needs. This project will provide briefs, reports, and manuscripts that describe trends in food insecurity within New Hampshire and for specific subpopulations within New Hampshire.
