In 38 states and DC, more than one in 10 adults with children said they did not have enough to eat during the first few months of the pandemic.[1] When children face food insecurity, it can result in serious consequences for their overall health and well-being.

In the premiere of our video series, 3 Questions About, Kimberly Montez, MD, MPH, FAAP, pediatrician and co-author of the Anthem Foundation sponsored report on childhood food insecurity, shares the importance of addressing childhood food insecurity among our most vulnerable communities.
