On Thursday, Feeding America released their study, “Map the Meal Gap,” detailing the number of meals that families miss each year across America—an estimated 8.4 billion nationwide and nearly 100 million in Minnesota alone. This study is complementary to the “Missing Meals” report that was released by Second Harvest Heartland in March of 2009.

"I would say it's a tool for how people can really understand what are the needs in every community, and how do you actually identify closing the gap around the need," said Vicki Escarra, the CEO of Feeding America about the “Map the Meal Gap” study.
