The Nature of Hunger in America
  by Ellen Sung

Oct. 15, 1999 - Almost one in 10 households are having trouble meeting
their families' basic food needs, and in 18 states over 10% of families
suffer om "food insecurity" -- either going hungry or lacking consistent
access to food. These figures, released Thursday by Agriculture
Secretary Dan Glickman at the National Summit on Community Food
Security, indicate that despite a strong economy and job growth, hunger
is still pervasive in America.


No surprises, but perhaps adiitional ammo.  Forgive me if this is a
duplicate and you already spotted it ages ago.
