Maryland Food Bank map highlights ‘hunger hotspots,’ estimates 2M food insecure Marylanders in 2021

Approximately 2 million Marylanders could experience food insecurity in 2021, according to estimates from the Maryland Food Bank.

The Maryland Food Bank on Wednesday released their updated Maryland Hunger Map, using data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the United Way, the Urban Institute and the U.S. Department of Labor.

The map highlights varying hunger needs across the state, including “hunger hotspots” where the need for food assistance has surpassed the amount of food being distributed.
