The State of Hunger in America
As President Barack Obama prepares to deliver his annual State of the Union address, Feeding America is highlighting groundbreaking new data from their recently released report, Hunger in America 2014. The study, released every four years, is the largest and most comprehensive analysis ever conducted of people seeking food assistance in the United States.
“The President’s upcoming State of the Union address will highlight what many in our network already know: that millions of working Americans do not earn enough income to meet their basic needs, and they must turn to food banks to help feed their families. While there is good news as the unemployment rate drops and more jobs are created, we know that millions of Americans are still struggling,” said Bob Aiken, CEO of Feeding America.
