Opinion: At Thanksgiving, an America of obscene contrasts
Nov 26, 2020 1 min, 1 sec

The non-profit organization Feeding America estimates that by the end of the year, more than 50 million American households could be food insecure -- that is, lacking consistent access to healthy food.

That's one in six Americans, and includes some 17 million children -- one in every four American kids.

"Experts say it is likely that there's more hunger in the United States today than at any point since 1998, when the Census Bureau began collecting comparable data about households' ability to get enough food," according to a report in the Washington Post.

We've already seen the miles-long lines for food banks.

A study from Northwestern University found that because of the pandemic, "food insecurity has doubled overall, and tripled among households with children." When children are food insecure, they face a host of ills.

Well before the pandemic, tens of millions of families were living on a razor's edge, knowing that a job loss or an illness could push them over the brink.

The pandemic didn't create American suffering, but it has pushed millions of families over the edge all at once.

Donate to your local food bank, or a food bank that needs it (here's a map of where projected food insecurity rates are highest).
