Chip In! Our small way of trying to give back….

The infographic doesn’t even begin to tell the whole story of hunger in the US.  It’s so sad – we are one of the wealthiest countries in the world, yet, according to a 2013 report by GlobalPost (an international news service), Chile, Mexico and Turkey are the only developed nations that have a higher level of income inequality.

It is not a lack of food creating the hunger problem in the US and poverty only tells part of the story.  Lack of employment, lower wages, lack of any household assets and certain area demographics all work to contribute to a large food insecurity problem in the US.
