Food insecurity, the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe food, is known to disproportionately affect households with members with disabilities.
A subset of these households experience hunger, the more extreme form of food insecurity characterized by reduced intake of food, disrupted eating patterns, and the inability to afford to buy more food.
Food insecurity is know to negatively affect the health of adults, and it is an additional barrier to achieving wellness in people with disabilities.
