Did you know 1 in 4 San Diegans is nutrition insecure* meaning they cannot provide 3 nutritious meals for themselves or their family per day? While this estimate is down from last year, it is still an increase from pre-pandemic years.
- 28% of the total San Diego population is nutrition insecure
- 35% of the child population is nutrition insecure
- 39% of Hispanic/Latino people in San Diego are nutrition insecure
- 37% of Black people in San Diego are nutrition insecure
With inflation soaring and the high cost of living in San Diego, many families rely on hunger relief assistance, even with both adults working.
For families who are experiencing nutrition insecurity, having a quick, easy way to cook that stretches their dollars is even more important.
