Report: 14-million U.S. households include hungry children

The Philadelphia Inquirer has details that should anger all Americans.

During the first week of July, the number of households with children that reported not having enough to eat was 13,570,374, according to an analysis of U.S. census data by the nonprofit, nonpartisan Council on Contemporary Families. Before March 13, the day the federal government declared a national emergency, the number was 12,046,456.

That’s an increase of more than 1.5 million households in just four months, from 12.8% to 14.5%.
