Twenty-two percent of Philadelphians are “food insecure,” meaning they at times lack access to enough food for a “healthy, active life,” according to a recent report from the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger. That’s the highest rate of food insecurity across the whole state.
Visualize that statistic and compare other counties’ hunger statistics (like the number of food stamp, or SNAP, participants and more) with this interactive map from the Coalition.
The map was built by Downingtown, Pa.-based web designer Jeremy Iglehart at Philly Give Camp, a hackathon focused on building products for nonprofits. Check out the project on Github here.-30-
