Portraits of Hunger: Americans on Food Stamps

The PBS News Documentary, Need to Know, did an informative episode on "food stamp" recipients last night, Portraits of Hunger: Stories of Americans on Food Stamps.  It is a moving, yet objective look at what its like to be worried about food security in America.  Almost half are children, approximately forty percent are working, but still fall below poverty guidelines, and many are elderly.  Here is an excerpt. There are additional videos on the website, including commentary on poverty in America.

Watch Portraits of Hunger on PBS. See more from Need to Know.
