Nearly half of Maryland families said their children were sometimes or often not eating enough food because of high costs, according to a new s udy from the Maryland Food Bank. The organization analyzed U.S. Census data and determined 45% of families said they were sometimes not giving enough food to their children because it’s too expensive. In February 2022, nearly 10% of respondents said their children were “often not eating enough because the household ‘just couldn’t afford enough food,” the group said in its report titled “A Research Guide to Child Food Insufficiency.”
