The survey also looked at homeownership, race and having a disability in relation to food security. Results showed that 4.9 percent of homeowners and 15.5 percent of renters were food insecure, meaning they had “low” or “very low” food security.

I'm okay with work requirements for Medicaid recipients. Puts them (sorta) on par with people who get medical from their employer.

Given my dead-end job history, my resume is essentially useless.
This place is hiring, and they don't care about your resume.

Then what were they spending their income on, because there is something that doesn't add up there.

Where do I get one of these HUD questionnaires and what do I get if I say I'm "food insecure"?

Or birth control. Fortunately now it's available free everywhere.

I bet that the reason renters are, in general, fatter than homeowners; their "food insecurity" makes them eat everything that they can stuff in.

I did not do a scholarly study, but I am observant.

The programs are there. Utilize em. I like to know my taxes do go to human life and not to a wall or gunning ppl in a foreign land.
On a side: lost 22lbs when on welfare. Resourcefull as I was, 42$ doesn't get you much a month.

Obviously, their priorities are whacked.

You wait until the Census Bureau knocks on your door. They're always surveying SOME subset of Americans - they do a lot more than the big census every ten years. Back in the '80s they surveyed me on health insurance.

Actually, food insecurity does distort the food buying and consumption patterns of many people. When I have extra cash, I stock up on nonperishables because I assume that at some point in the near future I will be broke. I don't stuff it in, I just hoard it for a rainy day.
