Palm Beach Food Insecurity

This piece was produced by WPBT2 South Florida in partnership with Chasing the Dream.

Palm Beach County has the highest rate of food insecurity in South Florida. More than 200,000 people in the county do not know where their next meal is coming from. That’s about 16% of the county. The problem affects children, seniors and thousands of families. South Florida PBS explores the work of a unique collaboration involving over 60 agencies that aims to find solutions to the problem, and takes a deeper look at a local organization that is fighting to alleviate hunger through food pantries and hot meal programs.
