Food and Poverty : Food Insecurity and Food Sovereignty among America's Poor Paperback / softback
Edited by Leslie Hossfeld, E. Brooke Kelly, Julia Waity
Food insecurity rates that skyrocketed with the Great Recession have yet to fall to pre-recession levels.
Food pantries are stretched thin, and states are imposing new restrictions on programs like SNAP that are preventing people from getting crucial government assistance.
At the same time, we see an increase in obesity that results from lack of access to healthy foods.
The poor face a daily choice between paying bills and paying for food.
