The 2014 Hunger Report proposes bold steps to end hunger in the United States by 2030. Hunger remains a problem in this wealthy country. About one in seven American households is not always sure where their next meal is coming from. Among children, African-Americans, and Hispanics/Latinos, this figure is about one in four.
Making jobs a priority would enable President Obama and Congress to reduce hunger in America by 25 percent by 2017.
In addition to investing in good jobs as a way of ending hunger, the Hunger Report calls for an end to the political brinkmanship that led to the sequester and other budget cuts.
Other recommendations focus on investing in people, strengthening the safety net, and encouraging community anti-hunger partnerships.
