I've seen other charts that reference data from the CDC, but I haven't found anything useful on their site, and they don't return emails.

Only a small time slice, but you can get since 2000 for every country from FAO.

Suite of Food Security Indicators --> http://www.fao.org/faostat/en/#data/FS

Select: United States

Select: enter image description here

Select: "All years"

Click "Download Data" (or pastebin)

  • Thanks for you work you put into this. At this point I really need to get data going back at least 50 years, or as long as I can get it. I may try to contact CDC using a few more other means, they also have a phone number listed so maybe I'll try that. Thanks again.
