University of Nevada Reno: New SNAP dashboard strengthens food-security education across Nevada

University of Nevada Reno: New SNAP dashboard strengthens food-security education across Nevada. “More than 11% of sixth graders in Nevada’s Clark County went hungry some time in the previous month because there wasn’t enough food at home. The number of people in the Las Vegas area who skipped meals or cut back their eating because they didn’t have enough food, meanwhile, grew by an estimated 47% during the pandemic. Even for food-security professionals such as Macy Helm who closely track numbers such as these, a powerful new online dashboard developed at the University of Nevada, Reno, provides a fresh – and sometime startling – way to visualize the challenges of food security, nutrition and physical activity across Nevada.”
