ENDING HUNGER IN AMERICA


In its Action Plan to End Hunger in America, the Food Research Action Council looks at the current state of the US economy and the persistence of hunger within it.  It identifies eight essential strategies for decisively attacking hunger in America. They are:
  1. Create jobs, raise wages, increase opportunity, and share prosperity;
  2. Improve government income-support programs for struggling families;
  3. Strengthen SNAP;
  4. Strengthen Child Nutrition Programs;
  5. Target supports to especially vulnerable populations;
  6. Work with states, localities, and nonprofits to expand and improve participation in federal nutrition programs;
  7. Make sure all families have convenient access to reasonably priced, healthy food; and
  8. Build political will.
