Today, the world celebrates vast technological advancements, yet every 9th person suffers from food scarcity (1). The rate of food insecurity in the United States is even higher, standing at 11.8% (2). In the Silicon Valley, specifically, that rate more than doubles to 24.8%—making every 4th person food insecure (3). A total of 720,000 people out of 2.9 million Bay Area residents live with food insecurity (3).
