Comment:Anne Marie from LA is an idiot - how bad could it be? Really? Perhaps you don't realize that its expensive to eat healthy. Pasta, rice, beans, bread...much cheaper than vegetables, better cuts of meat, etc. You need a good wake up call lady... Give some money to a food bank and shut your mouth.

Comment:After reading the comments of hunger and poverty in the USA, I can say that there is no real commitment as human beings to help those in need. I see statistics, numbers, but what I do not see is action. The UN, and most organizations are together with governments that talk and do nothing. I see it in my country every president leaves with handful of money not carrying for its people. It is said that there is for everybody then why become so voracious.Humanity has leant nothing and destroys the wonderful world which was given to us free. May God help us before the end comes.

Comment:Actually Ron, though many businesses do fear donating food because of the liability issue, the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act was signed by Pres.Clinton in 1996 to protect business and others who donate or help in the process of donation of food. So, that helps a lot. Also, there were exact parameteers established for what food qualifies to be donated and within those guidelines there is a tremendous amount of food that can be used for good and not thrown away. Perhaps you can't give away food that you dont want to finish on your plate, agreed, but anyone could hook up with a food rescue agency and volunteer one night a week or a month to pick up food from restaurants and supermarkets, i.e. bagels from Panera Bread, who is one of the many restaurants very open to donating, and deliver them to a shelter in need.

Comment:The information is good the know and to share. However, there is information that is not offered in the report that needs to be considered. What is not reported is the fact that USDA has set mandates that oppose of giving away of certain foods. Also, in our litigate happy society, people and commercial establishments are fearful of such things. Some state laws also mandate illegal activities of how excess foods is handled. Once one has ALL the facts, then a final statement can be given and a solution sought.

Comment:most of the poor people in america are usually the minority. many of whom have come to america to get a better life. i too was raise in a family of low income. i remember growing up and not wearing any fancy clothing and my parents were not home until night down, usually until 9 to 10 o'clock at night. I did not have any help on my homework and i couldnt stay after school for programs because there would be no buses(2 mile distance). my parents also have low education and when it comes to school meeting, they wouldnt go because there was no translator. So i think we need to open our eyes and look deeper into WHO is really in poverty, and who wants to be in poverty. i am now attending my first year in college as a freshman and its very difficult with money. getting a job at this economic time is also hard. so if its hard for you with money, think about the lower income for those who have nightmare every night seeing if they could make ends meet.

Comment:I am truly amazed at some of the comments that were just written by some of the most uncaring people in this country, well maybe not the most but pretty darn close. You may be young now but there will come a time when you are not and since you do not seem to realize that the poverty in the United States is the hardest on the children that are growing up. Do you know that malnutrition causes a child to be stunted in growth and retards there cognitive development, bet not. Did you know that these two factors prevent these children from reaching their full potential as adults, bet not. Malnutrition and malabsorption cause people to be either obese or very skinny, bet not. Of course you can waste food and make rude comments but if and when the shoe is on the other foot, remember this day. I will pray for you that the same kind of people that you are, will not be the ones taking care of your well being. May God forgive you.
