House Agriculture Committee Member Jim McGovern (D., Mass.) spoke on the House floor today about hunger issues in the United States.
In part, Rep. McGovern noted that, “Once again, I rise to talk about the issue of hunger in America. There are over 50 million Americans who go hungry each year. That’s about one in every six Americans who don’t know where their meal is coming from on any given day. Mr. Speaker, in the richest, most prosperous country in the world, that is unconscionable.”
