The faith-based anti-hunger advocacy organization Bread for the World today released its 2014 report on Ending Hunger in America. This organization stands out for its economically sensible poverty-centered approach to thinking about the problem of hunger.
It is right for such an organization to press for greater generosity in federal nutrition assistance programs (as Step #3 out of 4 steps). But it also seems wise for Bread for the World to give jobs and education their proper place (as Steps #1 and #2).
The #1 plank has the tag-line: "The best defense against hunger is a good job."
