The number of Americans with limited or inadequate access to food is not only increasing but is also much higher than what the government data shows, a new study has found.
Food insecurity, as they call this phenomenon, is becoming especially problematic as inflation hovers near all-time highs. And since wages have stagnated in many areas, millions are no longer able to make ends meet like past generations did doing honest work.
Every year, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) sends out a survey to collect data on Americans’ access to and spending on food. The agency uses this data to inform policies pertaining to the causes and consequences of food insecurity.
When the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “pandemic” struck, the disruptions that psy-op caused have worsened food insecurity across the country by as much as one-third – meaning food insecurity has increased by about 33 percent compared to pre-“pandemic” levels.

Americans were asked more often during covid how they were doing food-wise, which may have slightly inflated the numbers
Between the years of 2019 and 2021, food insecurity across America was relatively stable, hovering between 10.2 percent and 10.5 percent. In California specifically during those same years, food insecurity actually went down by one percent, meaning Californians’ access to food actually increased.
In other states, though – and in some specific areas of California such as Los Angeles – food insecurity skyrocketed. According to weekly data collected from Los Angeles County and the U.S. Census Household Pulse Survey, food insecurity in that area more than doubled, hitting 21.8 percent from February through April and May of 2020.
Part of the reason why the figures leapt so dramatically is because many people were being asked directly and more frequently about their food insecurity, which caused some to recall things that they may not have had the surveys been annual instead of weekly.
In Los Angeles, people were asked 11 separate times throughout the scamdemic how they were doing food-wise. By December of 2021, just one-third of people who reported food insecurity earlier in the year did not report it again when asked if they are experiencing it this year.
“Memory plays a key role in accuracy,” said Kayla de la Haye, the lead researcher and associate professor of population and public health sciences at the University of California’s Keck School of Medicine.
“That’s why the time frame during which a survey is conducted is vital, as recall is biased against events that are less frequent or further away.”
Published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine (AJPM), the study calls on the USDA and other food agencies to conduct surveys more often than just once a year to ask about food insecurity in the past week or month. Doing this more frequently could help policymakers better identify areas in crisis and potential solutions as well.
“If we keep the government far, far away from the farms, ranches, and food producers, we will be fine,” wrote one commenter about how government and the globalists who have infiltrated it are the biggest culprit driving poverty and food insecurity in this country.
“Stop the chemical-trails programs all over the earth and stop poisoning, killing, and mangling plants,” wrote another about how genetic engineering (GE), geoengineering (chemtrails), and other industry- and government-led programs are further exacerbating the problem by polluting our soils.
“This diabolical program affects every living thing: human, animal, and plants. It’s like inhaling, absorbing, and injecting the worst chemical cocktails into your mind and body every single day.”
