COVID-19 will leave more than a half-million more Georgians in a state of food insecurity.
That’s according to a recent supplemental report from the hunger-relief organization, “Feeding America.”
The report’s prediction is that half of those will be children.
All of this is on top of the more than 1.3 million Georgians who are already without access to enough nutritious food to live a healthy life.
That half-million figure is a prediction.
But when WABE’s host of “All Things Considered” Jim Burress spoke with the head of the Atlanta Community Food Bank earlier this afternoon, Kyle Waide said recent demands affirm those predictions.
