American Dilemma: Pay Rent or Buy Food


Written By: A. Coffin

September 2014

Many Americans go to bed hungry. While this isn’t new, the sheer number of people using food banks, regularly, continues to rise. These are working people - your co-workers, your friends, military families, or perhaps, even you. They often make the choice between paying rent and feeding their family.

The statistics are staggering. A study by Feeding America finds that one in seven American families rely on food banks for meals. That translates to 46 million people. Equally alarming is the fact that 25% of the nation’s military families, or 620,000 military households, need meal assistance.
