Hunger Invades the Texas Middle Class

Today the Houston Chronicle printed an interview with Amy Ragan, executive director of the End Hunger Network. Ragan points out that there are approximately 800,000 food insecure Houston residents, including many working families.

Ragan sees the problem getting worse, as food and fuel prices continue to squeeze Texans at every income-level. While prices continue to rise, she warns, "there are going to be more and more people accessing emergency food assistance for the first time."
