(KSL News) Utah is now fourth in the nation when it comes to households running short on food.

A new federal report shows more than 5 percent of Utah families skipped a meal between 2005 and 2007 because they didn't have enough food.

Advocates say Utah's single mothers and their children are the most vulnerable because of little access to government aid.

The Deseret News reports a record 62,000 households used food stamps last month.

Only Mississippi, Maine and Oregon ranked higher than Utah in the report.
