The number of Americans fighting off hunger stayed level last year, though food insecurity rates remain the highest they have been since the federal government began keeping track 15 years ago, a Department of Agriculture report released Monday found.

About 14.7 percent of U.S. households were "food insecure" in 2009, meaning they had difficulty feeding one or more of their members at some point last year due to a lack of financial resources, according to the report. That equates to 17.4 million households total, or roughly 45 million people.

This year's rate marked a slight increase in percentage from 2008, when 14.6 percent of American households had trouble putting food on the table.

The working and middle classes can barely afford not much more than canned food, rice, fruit and vegetables et. al, but the globalist elite and their wealthy cronies are pouring down gourmet meals and chef-made foods down their mouths.

This revelation has to be disturbing to every average American, and to middle class society as a whole.
