The United States of America might be the richest country in the world but surprisingly, it is still filled with citizens who struggle to make ends meet. Millions of Americans live below the poverty line, and their lack of funds makes it difficult to afford basic living necessities, such as food. In fact, one out of every six people in the country regularly doesn’t get enough to eat. Over 42-million people live in households where there’s not enough food available. The most alarming part of these hunger statistics is that out of all of these people, 13-million of them are children. The main reason for this is that the vast majority of them are being raised by single mothers who have a hard time paying for food, bills, and childcare on just one income. Some of the children are also in households where their parents often have to go hungry so that their children can eat.
