American's Hungry......

The number of Americans that have trouble putting food on the table shot up last year to a record 17 million households. To combat the nation's rapidly growing hunger problem, the Recovery Act allocated $20 billion to the nation's food stamp program. From the looks of things, it is only getting worse, and what was already a problem, has now ballooned. The lines have gotten longer at the food banks and shelter's through out the local areas. I can only assume how bad it must be in the rural areas, where some people are unable to make it to the food banks very often.
