No other drought has severely affected the state of California within the past century like the 2014 drought. In 2014, California faced its third year of drought, which tightened resources statewide. Agriculture, businesses and residents alike faced losses caused by the state’s water deficit. One important implication of the drought is the increase in food insecurity in California’s low-income communities. Food insecurity is defined by the United States Department of Agriculture as “a household-level economic and social condition of limited or uncertain access to adequate food”. This factsheet highlights how the drought has impacted food production for farmers and the current programs being implemented to addressrising food insecurity in the Delta and Gold Country service area.
