Has there ever been a time in your life when you haven't had enough food to make it through the week? If you have never experienced this, you are extremely fortunate. Even during the best of times, millions of Americans struggle with hunger, and these definitely are not the best of times. Because of all the crazy things that have happened so far in 2020, large numbers of people have been forced into dramatic lifestyle changes. Many Americans have deeply cut their food budgets due to a lack of income, others are now only eating one or two meals a day, and we are seeing more demand at food banks around the country than we ever have before.
It is quite obvious that massive numbers of people are really hurting, and Bloomberg is reporting that it is being projected that the number of Americans that are "fighting hunger" will rise to "more than 50 million" by the end of this calendar year…
The ranks of Americans fighting hunger are projected to swell some 45% this year to more than 50 million.
To me, that is an absolutely staggering figure.
