The United States is the world’s wealthiest nation, yet we still have families and children who don’t have enough to eat. In Minnesota 1 in 10 households are food insecure and 4.3% families have very low food security.
Food insecure means families don’t have enough money to regularly obtain all the food they need. It means they are rationing food and skipping meals.
Take a look at an interview with Joel Berg of NYC’s Coalition Against Hunger. He discusses the consequences of and solutions for food insecurities. You can take action by singing the online pledge to ask the president and Congress enact the president’s pledge to end U.S. child hunger by 2015.
