Plan to end hunger released

The Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) has released a Plan of Action to End Hunger in America.

The strategies outlined in the plan offer concrete solutions, which can be achieved with renewed political will, for addressing hunger and its root cause, poverty, Federal nutrition programs alone cannot carry the burden. Unless employment levels and wages rise substantially, and wor-
king schedules, benefits, and work supports improve, we cannot solve hunger.

From the plan:  “We have no excuses for leaving hungry Americans behind. There is a clear path to eliminate hunger in this country and create a much healthier, better educated, and more productive society with greater opportunity and commitment to our common ethical, moral, and religious aspirations.”
