The Meal Gap

The Meal Gap, Feeding America’s official measure of food insecurity, represents the meals missing from the homes of families and individuals struggling to put food on the table—or, when household food budgets fall too short to secure adequate, nutritious food year-round.

According to Feeding America’s Map the Meal Gap annual in-depth study of hunger, there are more than 343,000 individuals in the Food Bank’s service area who experience food insecurity. That means 1 in 7 of our neighbors are living with food insecurity.

The Food Bank has a tremendous impact on closing the meal gap and food insecurity in our community. With the help of our supporters and partners, we distributed nearly 45 million meals in southwestern Pennsylvania from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021. We continue to work on new programs and with new partners to figure out how to provide the additional meals that needed in our communities to close the gap.
