​Asian Americans

  • Harmful racial stereotypes cause many to overlook hunger among Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

  • An estimated 6% of Asian Americans are food insecure. That's 1 in 16 people who identify as Asian American.

  • More Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders visit food pantries and soup kitchens due to the economic hardship of the pandemic.

“Our retail rescue has dropped off significantly. We used to receive probably seven or eight trucks a day that would go out and pick up food from the stores, which unfortunately, they don’t have it to donate right now.”
