While this video was made in 2007 or before by 3 people by the name of Luke, Josh and Pat the reality is that poverty has grown across America. During the Bush era the government decided to no longer it call HUNGER, “hunger” but instead for global political reasons they decided to call it FOOD CHALLENGED as if those who are living in impoverished conditions or are living in middle class homes but are still going “hungry” in the worlds richest and most powerful country would somehow think they are less hungry if their condition was renamed.

What kind of world is it that we want to live in?
