That percentage equates to more than one in six families, and when it comes to households with children, that rate increases to near one in five. Those rates rank Kentucky as 12th in the state, with the number one spot being the worst for hunger, according to a new study released by the Food Research & Action Center (FRAC), a national anti-hunger advocacy group.
