Access to affordable housing means families have more available income to buy adequate and nutritious food.
“Over 41 million Americans live in households that struggle against hunger. These are working families struggling to make ends meet; veterans, people with disabilities, seniors, and the most vulnerable population — children.” Food Research and Action Center (FRAC)
“Low-income families with children that have affordable housing, whether subsidized or not, spend $151 more a month on food than families with severe housing burdens. Three-quarters of families earning less than $15,000 face severe housing burdens spending more than 50 percent of their income for housing.” -Urban Institute
