LAS VEGAS, May 22, 2024 – Three Square Food Bank’s highly anticipated event, Las Vegas Restaurant Week, will return to Southern Nevada on Monday, June 3 through Friday, June 14, allowing restauranteurs and food enthusiasts alike to unite for a 12-day event combatting food insecurity.

“Las Vegas is known for its exceptional culinary experiences, and at Three Square, we are thrilled to see our community and the culinary industry unite for Las Vegas Restaurant Week,” said Beth Martino, President and CEO of Three Square Food Bank. “The growing excitement each year not only celebrates our city’s food scene but also helps us provide essential support to our hungry neighbors throughout Southern Nevada.”

LAS VEGAS (MAY 20, 2024) — Children who rely on free and reduced-price lunch during the regular school year can continue receiving meals this summer through the “Meet Up and Eat Up” program. From Tuesday, May 21 through Friday, Aug. 9, Three Square Food Bank and its community partners will supply free, nutritious summer meals to children in need through this program, which encompasses the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP).

Currently, families across Southern Nevada experience financial strain as reports show the state faces the second highest grocery prices in the nation, as well as high rents relative to median income. With a significant number of families struggling to pay their bills and put food on their tables, thousands of Clark County School District (CCSD) students continue to rely on free or reduced-price meals. Every summer when school ends, these kids are at risk of being food insecure. Currently, 22% of children in Southern Nevada – or one in five, which equates to 115,520– live in a food-insecure household. Funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered by the Nevada Department of Agriculture, Meet Up and Eat Up bridges the gap to prevent childhood hunger during the summer months.

More than 341,000 Southern Nevadans, including one in five children, to experience food insecurity this year

LAS VEGAS, May 16, 2024 – Three Square Food Bank announced the release of Feeding America’s 2024 Map the Meal Gap study, which shows an alarming trend throughout Southern Nevada: food insecurity is on the rise and continues to be a top issue for many struggling families.

The annual study revealed there are 341,480 – or one in seven– food-insecure individuals in Southern Nevada, an increase of 67,050 people since last year. The food insecurity rate across Three Square’s entire service area – which includes Clark, Lincoln, Nye and Esmeralda counties – is now 14.7%, up from 12%.

The study also shows that 22% of children in Southern Nevada – or one in five, which equates to 115,520– are living in food-insecure households. This is up from 17.8% in 2023.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines food insecurity as limited or uncertain access to enough food to live an active, healthy life.

Students across Nevada are weeks away from summer break. While many students look forward to a break from classroom time and studying, many parents face another worry: how to keep food on the table without the federally funded school breakfast and lunch program.

One in five children in Nevada resides in a food-insecure household. Supplemental child nutrition programs aren’t just nice to have, they are critical to ensuring all children have regular access to healthy food.
