The percentage of Connecticut adults who say they did not have enough money to buy food has nearly doubled during the past year, according to new data released today by DataHaven from its comprehensive statewide well-being survey. The rate of food insecurity as of August 2022, at 17 percent of adults, is higher than the rate measured by DataHaven in 2015, 2018, mid-2020, and 2021. In 2021, just 10 percent of Connecticut adults reported food insecurity.
