What would cause low water pressure in the kitchen faucet and dishwasher?

Tonight, while doing dishes, I lost nearly all water pressure to my kitchen sink. The first thing I did was unscrew the aerator, then I checked the valves below the sink, all of which were good to go. Then I checked other faucets in the house, all of which were functioning properly. The dishwasher appears as if its not getting any water as well. I opened up the crawlspace and couldnt see or hear any obvious leaks. My next step is to check the meter before bed and when I wake up, which will tell me if I have a significant leak.

Does this sound like a problem that is deeper (i.e. in the wall/professional repair) than an under-sink DIY repair? Does anyone have any words of wisdom or advice?
