At the Arkansas Foodbank, we understand that healthy bodies and minds require nutritious meals at every age. However, 1 in 5 Arkansans face inconsistent access to adequate amounts of nutritious food needed to live healthy, active lives.
The county-level analysis that is part of Map the Meal Gap indicates that counties with the highest rates of food insecurity also have a higher prevalence of diabetes, obesity and persons with a form of disability.
As part of the Arkansas Foodbank’s commitment to Partnership for Healthier America to increase the demand for healthier foods, we offer our member agencies and clients a variety of nutrition education resources.
