Hungry in Washington, 2009


A new report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture confirms that hunger in Washington is on the rise as the effects of the recession take their toll on Washington families. The Children's Alliance's analysis of the data, Hungry in Washington, says that hunger was up 24 percent in December, 2008, compared to the prior year, and 13 percent more Washington households struggled to put enough food on the table.
