Summary
This sequel to "Starving in the Shadow of Plenty" dramatically portrays the hunger found in middle- and working-class families, the suddenly homeless, as well as America's military families, its refugees, and its immigrants. A call to action, this work is a study of a hidden epidemic that still remains largely unacknowledged at the highest political levels and is lauded as "a deft blend of tough investigative reporting and deep compassion ... an unforgettable exploration of public policy, its failures and its victims" by the most respected senators, members of Congress, journalists and hunger advocates in the country
