Have you noticed how the gov. keeps changing the way it describes problems to make them more acceptable? Here is one more case of that.

Wow who knew that so many people in America was going hungry, that is a disgrace. The gov. gives farmers subsidies to stop growing certain crops like tobacco, shutting down their dairys, why not attach that they have to grow a crop of food for the poor and also give them a tax break if they do. It would be a win win situation.

There were more people with very low food security - those who are worst off. The number was 10.8 million, up from 10.7 million in 2004.

There were 24 million people with low food security, down from 27.5 million in 2004.

The group doing the worst, whether measured by food insecurity or poverty, "isn't being helped enough to start shrinking, even though the economy keeps growing," said Jim Weill, president of the Food Research and Action Center, an anti-hunger group.
