Toelichting (Engels) This study assessed the prevalence of food insecurity and hunger in a sample of households in which one or more occupants were participants in the Special Supplemental Food Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC). The sample consisted of 309 women from Ft. Worth, Texas, who completed an interview that included an assessment of their household food security status. Although a majority of the households were food secure, 35% had experienced food insecurity or hunger during the previous 12-month period. The prevalence of food insecurity was higher among female-headed households and households witch children younger than 5 years of age
