Food insecurity in New Mexico is above the US average. Counties in green are doing better than the US average of 14%, while counties in red are worse. McKinley County is almost double the US average with 24.3% of the population experiencing food insecurity. According to the FDA, food insecurity is a household-level economic and social condition of limited or uncertain access to adequate food. This data comes from Feeding America’s data on food insecurity in the United States from 2013. For more on food security in New Mexico, see Ed William’s story here.
