Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

"Why should there be hunger and privation in any land, in any city, at any table when [we have] the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all [hu]mankind with the basic necessities of life? ... There is no deficit in human resources; the deficit is in human will."

— Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., in his Nobel Peace Prize lecture
