Obesity and Hunger: Partners?


Rates of obesity, food insecurity (aka hunger), poverty and Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) participation. States with high levels of food insecurity also have high levels of obesity. In addition 14 states that have higher than national average for hunger also have higher than the national average for obesity. High levels of SNAP participation does not seem to prevent high levels of obesity and hunger.
