It’s estimated 17 million children nationwide come from food insecurity, meaning they often go hungry because they don't have enough food. That's one in four children failing to get the necessary nutritious food. Sandy Klein with NeighborImpact says they're seeing the same numbers here in Central Oregon. “Well, currently our unduplicated count of people being served is 16,000 each and every month and that's for the entire tri-county area and I'd say 35% are children. And that's up from just 14,000 last year. The numbers just keep increasing. Klein says they're also seeing fewer donations from the Oregon Food Bank at a time the demand is greater than ever. Cuts in food aid at the federal and state level are having an effect.
