Report Card on Food Insecurity and Immigration: Helping Our Youngest First-Generation Americans to Thrive

In this report card, Children’s HealthWatch research highlights the disparities immigrant families with young citizen children experience in their ability to afford enough food and describes the severity of that deprivation. This report card also explores how the length of time mothers have lived in the U.S. is related to their family’s ability to afford enough food.

This publication is the third in a series of report cards, which are made possible through generous funding from The JPB Foundation.

Children’s HealthWatch thanks Jackie Vimo, National Immigration Law Center, Sonya Schwartz, Sonya & Partners, LLC, and Laura Speer, Annie E. Casey Foundation for their thoughtful review and contributions to this work.
