  • Hunger in Vermont and America

    Nationwide, hunger is at an all-time high. Last year, almost 45 million people - or one in every seven Americans - received food stamps, more than at any other time in our nation's history. In Vermont, more than one in eight households do not have the money to fully meet their food needs at all times, according to Hunger Free Vermont. More than 12,000 Vermont children depend on food shelves each month and almost 10,000 Vermont seniors face the threat of hunger. So to Sen. Bernie Sanders, it is "unconscionable" that cuts in a federal emergency hunger program have resulted in a 50 percent reduction in food supplies from that program for the Vermont Foodbank.
