Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Frontline Takes a Look at Child Poverty

Watch Poor Kids Preview on PBS. See more from FRONTLINE.

This month, PBS will air the "Frontline" documentary "Poor Kids," a rare look at the realities of child poverty and hunger, as told by three young girls who are dealing with those issues firsthand. 

"Frontline" spent months following the girls, who live in the Quad Cities area, along the border of Iowa and Illinois. In the heartbreaking 30-second preview, one of the girls talks about life in a shelter, and another talks of her family's struggles since her father was laid-off from his job.

"Poor Kids" debuts, both online and on PBS affiliate stations, on November 20.
