1 in 6 Americans struggle with Hunger!
According to the annual survey of hunger by the New York City Coalition Against Hunger, in 2010-2012 between 1.3 and 1.4 million - including 1 in 5 children lived in households that lacked sufficient food. 1 in 8 Brooklyn residents line in food insecure households. Food insecurity increased by a minimum of 200,000 since the 2006-2008 timeframe. These hunger statistics do not yet reflect the impact of the recent large sclae cuts in SNAP (food stanps).
