Further informationMost people who experience chronic hunger live in rural parts of developing countries, which are places that generally don’t have a lot of resources, modern technology, and other advancements. In the United States, the main concern with hunger is food insecurity, meaning that rather than people experiencing ongoing hunger, there are people who sometimes miss meals or don’t always know where their next meal will come from, and people who have food to eat but still lack proper nutrients and access to healthy food.If you feel concerned about the ideas of chronic hunger or food insecurity, talk to your family! Ask them to speak with you openly about where your food comes from and what kinds of resources there are in your community for those who are hungry.
