Mari Gallagher Research & Consulting Group and Feeding Florida, the premier statewide network of 12 food banks, are pleased to release the Meal Deficit Metric Project. Florida leaders stated that this novel approach will revolutionize how the organization solves hunger at an extremely localized level. This new study provides a more accurate representation of resources needed in every community across Florida than has previously existed. This granular data provided by MG’s unique statistical model will uniquely position food banks to quantify and pinpoint the needs of under-resourced households.
