One in seven households in Indiana are “food insecure”, meaning they don’t get enough to eat or they don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Indiana is the 11th hungriest state. Marlysa D. Gamblin, Domestic Advisor for Policy and Programs, Bread for the World Institute said that one in three African-American household in Indiana are food insecure, meaning one in four children in Indiana who are African-American live below the poverty line, compared to one in 13 white children. Gamblin said that means black children are three times as likely to live in poverty.
