Feeding America has an astonishing amount of food insecurity data. The ‘Map the Meal Gap’ project was started to help the general public better understand the amount of food insecurity in the United States, but also for individual states and counties to seek out additional help based on their stats.
Feeding America undertook the Map the Meal Gap project to learn more about the face of hunger at the local community level. By understanding the population in need, communities can better identify strategies for reaching the people who most need food assistance.
– Overall Executive Summary
This project was originally started at Manifest Digital. It has been through a few iterations with our Founder even helping with the original development while at Manifest. Since then the project changed agencies to our friends at Futureman Digital. We have worked with them to help maintain updates, add new features, and optimize code.
