According to the USDA, households with low food security make up about two-thirds of food-insecure households. These households manage to get enough to eat, but reduce the quality, variety, or desirability of their meals to do so. Members of these households are at elevated risk for a number of problematic health and developmental conditions, but because they do not substantially reduce the amount of food they eat, they are not likely to suffer from hunger in the sense of the uneasy or painful sensation caused by lack of food.
1 in 6 individuals in Lee County are considered food insecure.
With so many options available to help our neighbors and community in need, doing nothing is not an option. Community Cooperative would like to encourage everyone, young and old to take ownership in helping our Southwest Florida community. Doing anything is better than doing nothing.
