Food Insecurity in Milwaukee?
A person is food insecure when they lack resources for consistent access to adequate food. For most it is episodic and cyclical, measured by a person’s situation throughout the whole year. Approximately 35% of residents in the Riverwest-Harambee Neighborhoods have an income level at or below the poverty line, which was $23,850 for a family of four as of last year. The need for some level of food assistance in Milwaukee increased by over 100% from 2005 to 2012.
