New Orleans has never been the same after the 2005 devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Katrina left parts of the city struggling to catch up especially its urban areas. New Orleans is a city located in the state of Louisiana. According to the 2010 Census, 343,829 people and 189,896 households were in New Orleans. The racial and ethnic makeup of the city was 60.2% African American, 33.0% White, 2.9% Asian, 0.0% Pacific Islander, and 1.7% were people of two or more races. With 53.15% of that population is made up of women. Residents of New Orleans and of Louisiana are more likely to lack a high school education than residents of the United States as a whole. New Orleans does not appear to invest in all its communities equally. Forty percent of the adult residents of the Lower Ninth Ward lack a high school diploma or GED. The average income for those in New Orleans, especially in the Lower Ninth Ward is $19, 918, with an overall rate of 36% in poverty and of that 48% are children. Hunger and malnutrition rates were unavailable for New Orleans, more specifically its Lower Ninth Ward but it is a fact that the area is considered a "food desert", or region abandoned by major grocery chains which lacks ready access to fresh produce and other sources of necessary nutrients.
