Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Barack Obama


"No one who works full time should have to raise their family in poverty."

—President Barack Obama, on Feb. 12, 2013, during remarks given before signing an executive order raising the minimum wage for federal contract workers to $10.10 per hour.

It's time to raise the minimum wage and make sure that every full-time worker earns enough to keep a family out of poverty. Read more in the 2014 Hunger Report, Ending Hunger in America.
