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.
