Hunger in Medina County

In Medina County, food insecurity affects almost 16% of the total population, with child food insecurity as high as 22.5%. The vision of Feeding Medina County is to be the resource to fight hunger and food insecurity across Medina County. We believe no one should ever be hungry due to their circumstances.

What is Food Insecurity?

Food insecurity refers to the USDA’s measure of a lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members and limited availability of nutritionally adequate foods. Lack of nutritious food on a regular basis leads to many health, social and emotional issues. Food insecurity is not isolated to families living below the poverty line. When low-to-moderate-income families have challenges and cannot meet their basic needs, food insecurity becomes a major concern. They often need to make difficult decisions, such as paying rent or filling prescriptions, versus purchasing nutritionally adequate foods. Feeding Medina County’s mission is to nourish our neighbors in need. Our vision is a Medina County where everyone has enough to eat.
