It’s hard to believe that hunger is still an issue.
According to the USDA, 50 million people, or 16.6 percent of Americans, live in households at risk of hunger. The Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps, now puts food on the table for one in seven Americans. A family of three (one adult, two kids) earning more than $23,900 would not be eligible for food stamps. Over 18 million children receive SNAP benefits.
The new documentary, “Hunger Hits Home,” explores the crisis of childhood hunger in America through the eyes of the parents, children, anti-hunger activists, educators and politicians on the front lines of the battle. The film, which premieres April 14, is part of Food Network’s ongoing partnership with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign to end childhood hunger in America by 2015.
Aloha People- what are your thoughts about the Titanic re-release and all of the hype surrounding it?
I cannot even tell you how man times I’ve seen that movie both in the theater and on cable. I’m kind of sick of the movie however, the National Geographic/Discovery shows have been really interesting.
