How are food shortages effecting the people of the United States?

    Food shortages themselves aren’t really affected people in the United States; we still produce a surplus of food (more than we can consume). However, more and more Americans are needing government assistance to feed themselves. There’s been a spike in the number of people receiving food stamps, for example: as of July about 36 million people received food stamps under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, about half of them children. That’s up some 6 million from 2008. But this is an effect of the economic downturn and the recession, not a sheer shortage of food.
