I’m researching the prevalence of hunger & food insecurity in Orange County for my internship. I found this table of data from 2005 and 2009 of folks whose income is 200% of the Federal Poverty Line and below and live in Orange County from the CHIS health survey. The feminization of poverty is incredibly apparent in this table. From 2005 to 2009 not only did food insecurity increase, but the gap between men and women increased as well.
