Good News and Bad News in the Fight to End Hunger

First, the bad news: 

‘For the first time, a majority of public school students — 51 percent — live below the poverty line,’ said Shore, who serves on the National Commission on Hunger along with Jeremy Everett, founding director of the Texas Hunger Initiative, the summit’s organizer.

The good news is that, in the US at least, we can do something about it.

‘The good news is that the issue of hunger in America is a solvable problem,’ Shore insisted. Unlike some parts of the globe — where famine, war and drought produce hunger — in the United States, the solution rests in connecting children in poverty to available programs and services.
