Rate this:
Twenty-five million Americans-nearly 9 percent of the U.S. population-rely on food pantries. Another 13 million aren't linked to a food distribution network, and 14 million children are at risk of going hungry on any given day. Meanwhile, the faltering economy is increasing the number of American families that don't know where their next meals are coming from.Breadline USA treats this crisis not only as matter of failed policies, but also as a portrait of real human suffering. Investigative reporter Sasha Abramsky focuses attention on the people behind the statistics-the families caught up in circumstances beyond their control. Breadline USA is a vivid reminder of the fate many more Americans will face without urgent action. Book jacket.
