“There is a perception among many in our country that hunger is a just a city problem,” says Bob Aiken, CEO of Feeding America, which represents 200 food banks across the country. But it’s not true, he says.
The Map the Meal Gap 2015 report, based on 2013 federal data, found that food insecurity exists in every county, including those that are among the wealthiest, and it's especially prevalent among households with children.
Forbes published their annual ranking of the largest U.S. charities and Feeding America was listed in the 3rd spot, with $1.86 billion in private gifts. That was a 23% increase in gifts over the previous year.
