Food For Thought

40% Of All Food Produced In
The United States Is Thrown Away

The new face of hunger in America is the white middle class, many of whom own homes and live in good communities. They have become unemployed or under employed and they have too many mouths to feed on too few dollars.

49 million people in the U.S. are "calorie deprived" that is to say they do not eat enough each day to afford themselves enough calories to stay healthy.

People go to bed hungry, mothers cut back and eat less so their children can have a bit more. Families struggle to feed themselves all across the nation.

One in six Americans say they do not have enough to eat and yet we throw away almost half the food that is produced.

What has happened to the sanity of society? When will we wake up?
