The Food Bank of Iowa is conducting a study to find out why people in a state known for its food production are still going hungry. Researcher Suzanne Kinsky and partner Irene Hahn will focus their work on the 42 counties served by the Food Bank of Iowa. Kinsky says one of the things they’ll examine is “food insecurity” or the worry you won’t have enough food. They’ll also look at those who actually go hungry. Kinsky wants to find out if Iowans’ perceptions of the hunger problem fit reality.Their research is supported by the Food Bank and the Congressional Hunger Center in Washington, D.C. Kinsky hopes to complete the project by February.Kinsky will pass her research findings on to the Iowa Food Policy Council which will use the information to develop recommendations for the legislature on how to better serve needy Iowans.
