New Bread Fact Sheets
We’ve got two resources coming soon: “Hunger and Poverty among Older Americans” and “Hunger and Poverty among Latino Immigrant Children.” The former looks at hunger and poverty rates among people age 65 and older, and how fiscal year 2011 and proposed fiscal year 2012 budget cuts will have profound implications for older Americans. The second resource examines poverty and food insecurity among Latinos—the largest ethnic minority group in the United States—and barriers that threaten the well-being of Latino children. You can order them at www.bread.org/store.
