COVID-19's Impact on Food Insecurity

The rise of food insecurity in Southern Nevada

Few, if any, communities have been more affected by the health and economic fallout of COVID-19 than Southern Nevada. With unemployment at an all-time high, food insecurity has soared to record levels.

  • There are more than 363,000 Southern Nevadans experiencing food insecurity.
  • The number of food-insecure individuals we serve has gone from 1 in 5 to 1 in 6.
  • 1 in 4 children now lives in a food-insecure home.
  • 97% of the total food-insecure population in Southern Nevada resides in Clark County.

Many are looking to Three Square for assistance, leadership and comfort. We are here for them thanks to the help of our incredible network of supporters, volunteers and partners.

The vital and life-giving role of our mission is now on full display, as millions of newly unemployed people turn to our nation’s food banks for life’s most basic essential – food.
