Rev­o­lu­tion Foods, a lead­ing provider of healthy com­mu­ni­ty and school meals nation­wide, along­side DBL Part­ners, a ven­ture cap­i­tal firm com­mit­ted to enabling social, envi­ron­men­tal and eco­nom­ic improve­ment, today released the key find­ings of a nation­al poll with 636 respon­dents about food inse­cu­ri­ty in Amer­i­ca done by The Gen­er­a­tion Lab. The sur­vey focus­es on study­ing Amer­i­ca’s 18- to 24-year-olds and explores aware­ness and acces­si­bil­i­ty of food assis­tance pro­grams, as well as behav­iors sur­round­ing food costs. The research reveals that one in five respon­dents are cur­rent­ly wor­ried about food secu­ri­ty for them­selves or their fam­i­lies, and when asked to antic­i­pate their sit­u­a­tion post-pan­dem­ic, their wor­ry height­ens to one in three.

The com­mu­ni­ties we serve all across the U.S. have been sig­nif­i­cant­ly impact­ed by the pan­dem­ic, and this sur­vey was devel­oped to under­stand the broad­er scope of how young Amer­i­cans feel when it comes to acces­si­bil­i­ty and afford­abil­i­ty of healthy meals,” said Kristin Groos Rich­mond, CEO and co-founder of Rev­o­lu­tion Foods. “When the pan­dem­ic hit, as a com­pa­ny we began serv­ing beyond school and after-school part­ners to pro­vide nutri­tious, cul­tur­al­ly rel­e­vant meals to cities at large. As we con­tin­ue ser­vic­ing at this lev­el, we remain com­mit­ted to keep improv­ing our under­stand­ing of food inse­cu­ri­ty in the U.S., as well as ensur­ing these fam­i­lies have prop­er access to healthy meals.”
