The Economic Cost of Domestic Hunger

Hunger has a definitive, negative moral and monetary effect on our nation. Sodexo and its partners are producing landmark studies to determine the true consequences of hunger and the innovative steps states are taking to help America’s working poor.


Hunger has a cost far beyond human suffering. As this research outlines, the monetary cost to our country is more than $90 billion, far more than it would take to ensure that no citizen is at risk of hunger. We hope that this landmark study helps the nation engage in a more public dialogue about hunger and the measurable steps that we can take to make America a hunger-free nation.
