ABSTRACT
This article examines the research relating to hunger and children under twelve years of age in the U.S. According to the author's findings, hungry children are two to three times more likely than non-hungry children to suffer from specific illnesses. The author found that nearly four children in every ten are hungry especially in Alabama and Arkansas while in Washington D.C., the proportion of children who are hungry is about as high as in those poorest parts of the deep South. This unconscionable condition of hunger in the richest, most powerful country in the world is only one of the increasing and deteriorating conditions of life for American children.
