  • Poverty In Chester County

    Although Chester County may be the highest income county in Pennsylvania and ranked the 21st highest in the nation; we still suffer greatly from food insecure families and insufficient means to live by.1 In just this county alone we are seeing an assortment in our annual income from 63% of Coatesville residents earning less than $50,000 a year, to Charlestown, where over 90% of their residents are earning over $50,000 a year. With a population of nearly five-hundred-thousand individuals, nearly 6% are food insecure. That is approximately three-thousand people living in poverty.4 This means that the remaining counties in Pennsylvania have on average more than 2.3% of their population living below poverty level.
