U.S., 49 million hungry

According to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, for 2008, 49 million Americans do not have the certainty of having enough food. This figure is the worst since 1995, since when it has begun to collect data on hunger in the country.
14.5% of American households have difficulty buying food, while 11% "eats poorly and unfair." In 2007 there were 12 million children living in families where at times there was nothing to eat. In 2008 this number has reached 17 million.
Children in a state of malnutrition are gone, over a year, from 700 thousand to 1 million.
