Storyboard Text

  • FACT: 20.4 million Americans live in extreme poverty. This means their family’s cash income is less than half of the poverty line, or about $10,000 a year for a family of four.
  • Each year, 46.5 million people across the United States, including 12 million children and 7 million seniors, are struggling from hunger.
  • FACT: In 2012, the poverty rate for children under age 18 was 21.8. Children represented 23.7 percent of the total population and 34.6 percent of the people in poverty.
  • Meal programs to feed kids with low income parents should be put in place for kids to eat at school. This includes school breakfast, lunch, and summer programs.
  • FACT: The 2012 poverty rate for Hispanics was 25.6 percent, for Blacks 27.2 percent for Asians 11.7 percent and for non-Hispanic whites 9.7 percent.
  • There should be at least 2 food pantry/banks in every city/town. There should also be lots of advertising encouraging people to give donations to these low-income families.
