Prior to COVID-19, food security was identified as a priority community issue (Community Health Plan, 2019). In 2018, 15,220 residents (12.8%) in Douglas County were food insecure, including 3,650 children.Feeding America has also released research on estimates of the impact of coronavirus on food insecurity. These numbers are less exact as they do not have all the data they normally use in calculating their Map the Meal Gap numbers. The projected 2020 food insecurity rate for Douglas County in 2020 is 18.1%, up quite a bit from the 12.8% number from the most recent data in 2018, and the 2017 number of 15.9%.
