2021’s Neediest Cities

from Wallet Hub,Dec 20, 2021

Hunger, poverty and homelessness affect every nation — even the richest and most powerful. According to Feeding America, food insecurity plagues every U.S. county, with 38 million individuals lacking access to adequate food in 2020.

In 2020, 11.4% of the U.S. population lived in poverty. In the absence of more affordable housing or accommodations provided by relatives or friends, many people must take to the streets or shelters. According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness, more than 580,000 people — many of them children — had been homeless at one point in January 2020. As we continue to deal with the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important both help our existing impoverished population and make sure we minimize the number of new people who fall into poverty.

On the heels of their report on the most charitable states, WalletHub compared more than 180 U.S. cities based on 28 key indicators of economic disadvantage, such as child poverty, food insecurity and uninsured rates.
