50 million people in the U.S.-one in four children-don’t know where their next meal is coming from, despite our having the means to provide nutritious, affordable food for all Americans. One in four American children are "food insecure" - they don't know where their next meal is coming from
Did you know a fast food hamburger cost less than a peach? The reason people are going hungy is not because of a shortage of food it's because of poverty. Naturally for those living in poverty, the idea is to get the most amount of food for the least amount of money The problem isn't about "food stamp queens", or people taking advantage of the system. If another country was doing this to our kids we'd be at war! Help us do something about it. Charity is great, but will NOT end hunger! Call your congress members and insist they make this a priority. Money is wasted on education programs if our children are going to school hungry, they will not be able to concentrate!! What will you do about it?
If you'd like to be a part of the efforts to help this cause please let us know firstname.lastname@example.org
Locate then contact your Congress members to let them know this is not American. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/members/VA
