What type of food should you bring in for the Spirit Challenge? In the wake of the recent economic crisis more people are hungry than ever before. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service (USDA) reported in September 2016 that 42 million Americans, including over 13 million children are food insecure. A person is considered food insecure if they lack access to enough food to ensure adequate nutrition. The USDA estimates that 15.8 percent of Maine households, or more than 209,000 individuals, are food insecure. The number of Mainers who are food insecure decreased slightly from 2014 to 2015, but our rank compared to other states slipped. Maine now ranks 9th in the nation and 1st in New England for food insecurity. What Food should you bring in? Meals in a can (stew, chili, soup) Tuna and canned meat. Peanut butter. Canned foods with pop-top lids. Low-sugar cereals. 100% fruit juices in single serving boxes. Canned fruit packed in juice. Canned vegetables (low salt) Pop-top tuna 100% fruit rolls Raisins Graham crackers Unsweetened applesauce Cheese and crackers Fruit cups Pretzels Granola bars (without peanuts)
