Oregon recently experienced its largest single-year decline in food insecurity in the past 20 years. In last year’s national report, the USDA identified Oregon as the only state which had recently experienced a significant increase in food insecurity. However, the new 2014-2016 analysis shows the Oregon rate descending along with the rate for the whole country. Meanwhile, Oregon’s rate of very low food security (an indicator of deep food insecurity, sometimes called ‘hunger’) also declined from 6.6% to 6.2%.
