The current state of the economy is making it increasingly difficult for working Americans to make ends meet. Today, one in eight Americans do not always know where they will get their next meal. Feeding America's network of 205 food banks are reporting an average increase in demand of 15 to 20 percent and higher, with many reporting that they are now providing emergency food to people who were once donors. Children, seniors, and the working poor make up the majority of the 25 million Americans that our network food banks and more than 63,000 agencies currently feed -- but there are more than 36 million Americans at risk of hunger with the number growing everyday.
