Hunger in America – The US breadbasket is going empty

Almost 15% of US households experienced a food shortage at some point in 2009, a government report has found.

Ninety-seven percent of those surveyed reported either skipping a meal or cutting the size of their meal for the same reason.

Single mothers are among the hardest hit: About 3.5 million said they were at times unable to put sufficient food on the table.

US authorities say these figures are the highest they have seen since they began collecting data in the 1990s.
