Isn't that a pretty tiny minority though? And, we have had orphanages and charities and adoption systems and federal programs (recently) for a few centuries now, right?
What I mean is, we are all aware of the issue you raised, I think it's probably the #1 thing everyone can agree on, I think it's always been the #1 thing that everyone can agree on (feeding hungry children-foster homes).
I think the issue is being addressed. and if you know a child who is hungry, then give them some damn food. We should stop trying to funnel everything through a federal system dominated by ivy league educated power hungry lawyers who waste 30% of everything they touch and cost another 30% just to "administrate" and pay themselves 6 figures to do it
Anyone who is hungry, there are churches every other block. I guarantee you they will not turn you away or refuse to give you something to eat. There are food shelves all over the place, and I know they haven't been stocked as we'd like them to be, but the person I know who "depends" on the food shelf, and has even had a newspaper article done on her to promote sympathy for single mothers struggling.....she still makes her trip to the local casino every Friday night
