Joel Berg: How Hungry is America?

In his 2008 book “All You Can Eat: How Hungry is America?” Executive director of the New York City Coalition Against Hunger Joel Berg spotlights domestic poverty and hunger. Berg reveals how consistently the federal government has ignored the fact that 35.5 million Americans, including 12.6 million children, don’t have enough to eat.

While serving 8 years in the USDA in the Clinton Administration, Berg helped establish a National Government initiative to enable faith-based and other nonprofit groups fight hunger, and increase food security.
