Hunger is Real
(continued from previous post)
Hunger among children has health consequences that adversely affect their ability to fend off disease and to live a full and active life. A lack of a sufficient and reliable food source negatively affects both physical and mental health in many ways for adults and children.

Hunger among our nation's children is huge, and it is something we can all be ashamed of for allowing it to exist in our midst. “A crying shame,” is how my mother might say it. It is not just the homeless people that we see on the street going hungry, but working people with families that simply cannot earn enough to feed their children.
