More U.S. Families Running Out of Food, Beckmann Tells Newsweek
Bread president David Beckmann talks with Newsweek’s Claudia Kalb about how hunger affects kids and adults, the rising number of U.S. households without enough food, and the latest on the child nutrition act making its way through Congress.
“We’ve got way too much hunger—more than we have had for a long time. A scandalously and dangerously high rate,” Beckmann says. “This is completely unnecessary. Other countries at our income level do not put up with widespread hunger among kids.”
For more information about child nutrition programs, check out Bread’s website. You can help strengthen these programs by writing or calling your member of Congress—let them know how important these programs are to hungry kids. Our resources page includes information about points to make in your letter or phone call, and includes a sample letter. Thanks!
