43 million Americans now on food stamps
It was reported this week that the use of food stamps has increased 16 percent over last year. This adds up to 43 millions of Americans (14 percent of our total population) are now utilizing food stamps.
We know child nutrition is very important. Schools do their part by combat child hunger by providing free and reduced breakfast and lunch programs to students from low income families. But this rise in food stamp is alarming as we know in these hard economic times many students come to school hungry, malnourished, or are being provided an inadequate diet when parent can afford otherwise.
