I'd like to see the per capita amount.

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. - Michael Pollan

And while you're at it, remember that when you purchase food, you're voting with your dollar. Local farms, diversity, sustainability- all these should be positively answered by your vote.

New York from 2,to 15 and Texas from 3 to 29, that's a big change!  Much easier to get a good idea of the reality of the situation based on these stats!
