Food insecurity is an economic and social indicator of the health of the state. Since 2018 the insecurity rate has dropped from over 15% to 12.7%. Kansas is still about the USA average of 11% but the trend is a downturn.

                Recommendations: Kansas is supporting and producing less food than it has in the past. This means less food will be available in the coming months and years. Preparing a budget and a pantry plan for 6 month, 12 months, 3 years and 5 years allows us to absorb weak yield times.
