Generations United published their recent report on Hunger in America. Filled with interesting statistics and visuals, the report hopes to shed light on the growing problem of hunger that millions of Americans face on a daily basis.
Staggering statistics show that “1 in 5 children are hungry, or at risk of hunger” in one of the wealthiest countries in the world. This begs the questions of: “How is this possible?” and “Why isn’t something being done to end this?”
Instead, the current talks of a fiscal cliff in the US government puts programs such as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) under threat of budget cuts. This would leave 3 million of hungry Americans facing this problem all on their own.
