New report finds 28.3% of N.M. families have trouble buying food

The Food Research and Action Center released a report (pdf) Thursday on rates of food hardship over the year 2010, finding that 28.3 percent of New Mexico families with children had trouble getting food on the table in the past year.

The report took polling data from Gallup. Gallup asks: “Have there been times in the past twelve months when you did not have enough money to buy food that your or your family needed?” A yes answer means food hardship.

New Mexico had the 12th-highest rate of food hardship in the 50 states and the District of Columbia, with 28.3 percent of families with children and 16.5 percent of families without children experiencing food hardship.

The Albuquerque metro area had the 18th-highest rate with virtually identical rates of 28.2 percent of families with children and 15.8 percent of families without children experiencing food hardship.

The question asked didn’t address issues like the duration or frequency of food hardship. Regardless, the numbers are high. Here is the New Mexico Center for Law and Poverty’spage on food stamp benefits in New Mexico, which provide food assistance. Gov. Martinez announced earlier this week that she would ask the legislature to reauthorize additional state food aid that supplements the federal SNAP benefit.
