in 2008, 85 percent of U.S. households were food secure throughout the
entire year, and 14.6 percent of households were food insecure at least
some time during that year, up from 11.1 percent in 2007. This is the
highest recorded prevalence rate of food insecurity since 1995 when the
first national food security survey was conducted. in other countries they struggle more, but thankfully there are facilities which will help them if only little by little.
