Food insecurity in Greensboro
Dr. Tobin Walton
Food insecurity is the state of being without reliable food. It is important that everyone is being fed with the acceptable amount of food every day to survive. In Greensboro, it is estimated that 44 percent of people skip meals or cut down on their meal size because of food insecurity. Food insecurity has affected the people and communities of Greensboro in many ways. This study will explore how food insecurity has affected the city of Greensboro by focusing attention on the impacts to community organizations, relationships, and resources. This study will also focus on the lack of food assistance and fewer job opportunities. Through interviews and focus groups, information will be gathered from food banks and residents of food desserts to track the history of food insecurity and its impacts on communities within Greensboro, NC.
