Food Insecurity Among Women

Globally, about 60 percent of people who go hungry are female. Women and girls in the U.S. and around the world are more likely to experience hunger than men. Rates of hunger are even higher for single mothers and women and girls of color.

Studies show that women are more likely to spend additional income on food when their economic circumstances improve.

We invite more voices to speak up against gender discrimination and make effective, equitable programs a reality for women.
