To Amanda -- Do you really believe that hunger is not a problem in America?
Last week at Benaroya Hall in Seattle you answered "no" when you were asked, "Does any part of the "Food Revolution" deal with the fact that many people in this world do not have enough to eat?" You also indicated that hunger is not a problem in America', that our country's food problem runs in the opposite direcfion(i.e., obesity). Please understand that here in Seattle we have 2,600 people sleeping on the streets, without shelter, and families living in cars. By some counts, 1 in 5 children in the US goes to bed hungry every night. Ms. Hesser, do you really believe that hunger is not a problem in America?
