Summer time adds stress to families who are food-insecure. With children home from school, many families do not have access to the school-provided meals to keep their children fed.
The USDA reports:
“The defining characteristic of very low food security is that, at times during the year, the food intake of household members is reduced and their normal eating patterns are disrupted because the household lacks money and other resources for food.”
