Description


More than 25 percent of the world's population experiences moderate or severe levels of food insecurity. The United States is not exempt: 35 million Americans do not have regular access to food that is safe and nutritious. The viewpoints in this volume address how this is possible in such a rich and resourceful nation. They also explore why so many urban and rural areas are now considered food deserts. Readers will examine the paradox of the obesity epidemic and the government's responsibility to feed its citizens. The side effects of a hungry population, particularly children and seniors are assessed. Readers are challenged to evaluate and consider solutions for ensuring food security.
