Grandparents raising grandchildren face higher rates of hunger, less help

  • “Grandfamilies” are those in which children are raised by grandparents, relatives or close friends.
  • A new report says “grandfamilies” experience food insecurity at more than double the national rate.
  • The unexpected cost of raising children can put a strain on savings and supplemental benefits for retired adults.

These were relaxing years for grandmother Mercedes Bristol, 68, in San Antonio. Instead, she’s just picked up one grandchild from school and is on her way to pick up the other grandchild in a car full of brownies and a turkey she’s donating for her grandchild’s high school band fundraiser.
