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.”
