The State of Food Insecurity in Hawai‘i

Food insecurity in Hawai‘i is a complex issue. In order to address it, we must first understand it. To deepen understanding of food insecurity at the local level and to continue to strengthen opportunities for the communities we serve, Hawai‘i Foodbank commissioned The State of Food Insecurity in Hawai‘i, a comprehensive report that examines food insecurity in Hawai‘i.

The State of Food Insecurity in Hawai‘i is the first report of its kind to comprehensively evaluate food insecurity in Hawai‘i using the full United States Household Food Security Survey Module (US HFSSM), the most validated food security measurement tool applied in population studies. The report provides critical insights for programs and policies seeking to improve food security. Overall, the findings suggest that, at 30%, food insecurity in Hawai‘i is a significant issue that will require targeted, collaborative and comprehensive solutions from all of us in the community
