Has your family struggled to afford enough food?
The number of Californians who cannot afford enough food increased sharply during the recession. In 2009, more than 40 percent of low-income California adults - 3.9 million in all - could not afford enough to eat at least once in the previous year. That's up from nearly 35 percent of low-income California adults two years earlier, according to a recent analysis by California Food Policy Advocates and the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research.
Researchers say that the problem, known as food insecurity, is just one indicator that the economic downturn has reduced the quality of life and health of low-income Californians. For many families, putting enough food on the table remains a challenge today.
