'Food Network's Hunger Games'
I certainly haven't seen them.
At AmericanThinker.com, Rosslyn Smith discusses the (non?) issue:
"In their holiday promotion their spokespeople cite the much-debunked statistic that one in five children in America goes hungry on a regular basis.
Something is truly out of whack here. If one in five American children are going hungry how can there also be an epidemic of obesity that requires the downsizing the heavily subsidized public school lunch program to help correct? Basic observation indicates the children of the affluent are neither overweight nor emaciated.
If anything, many middle class children tend to look a little pudgy, while a great many of the children of the welfare class and the working poor are noticeably obese.
So who and where are those twenty percent of American children who go hungry?"
