How can we feed American children living below the poverty level?


Per one resource I consulted, 21% of all American children are living below the poverty level. That's over 1 in 5 children. When you're poor, getting enough to eat can be a challenge, let alone nutritious food that will let you do things like grow up strong and healthy and learn things to lift yourself out of poverty. I know the school lunch program does a lot, as does Feedig America and other charities like that. What are your ideas for how we can see that American children do not go hungry?

    I did not know about the law against helping. That's shocking.

    Did know child hunger gets worse when schools are closed...

    I agree churches and community groups can help, but a network lets more prosperous areas help less prosperous ones as well

    One of the things Feeding America does is put "surplus food" together w/ food pantries and other ways to get food to the hungry. Pretty smart
