Child Hunger In America – The Statistics Are Mindboggling [VIDEO]

You know?  I was just about to write about something completely different.  Something fun.  Something uplifting.  Then I read this and thought I’d pass it on for those of you worried about child obesity.

All of the articles that are out there seem to concentrate on kids getting plumper.  That’s definitely a problem, don’t get me wrong.

On the flip side, however is this dilemma, and it’s major.   According to – are you sitting down? –

Fifty million Americans—including one out of every four kids—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. That’s equivalent to every man, woman and child in the 25 smallest states plus the District of Columbia struggling with hunger on a daily basis.


I can’t even fathom that, can you?  Maybe we have misplaced worry here.  You don’t even THINK about this as a problem in the wealthiest country on earth.

They also reference a new movie that’s coming out that was produced by the same people who did “Food Inc.”.  That was eye opening in itself, but I hear that “A Place At The Table” is really a must see as well.
