Facts

 

HUNGER IN ARKANSAS

 
The faces of hunger are all around us. It
affects the young, the old, and every part of our state.

• More than 20%of those in Clay and Randolph counties live below the
poverty line and can not
afford enough food to eat. That means that 1 in 5 of
your neighbors struggles with making ends meet and
providing enough food for their family. - ACS Survey

 
• Arkansas' childhood poverty rate is 25.9% compared
to the national average of 18.4%. - ACS Survey

 
• 1 in 8 of our elderly citizens lives below the poverty
line and has to choose between food and medicine. - ACS Survey

 
• Arkansas is ranked in the top 5 of most food insecure states.

 
• The regions in our state with the greatest prosperity
will experience the greatest increase in poverty by 2010.
