Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

US, the largest producer of Food has 1 in 4 children starving. New Documentary Puts Childhood Hunger on the Table

Although the United States is the largest producer of food per capita in the world, that food is not reaching the plates of millions of children in America. Hunger is the subject of the new documentary, "A Place at the Table." Ray Suarez talks with co-director Lori Silverbush about our homegrown problem.


Since President Obama took office, the country has seen the largest rise of people on food stamps ever. An estimated 47 million people now depend on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program to put food on the table. That's one in five adults, and larger than the population of Spain. Since 2008, food stamp use has spiked over 50 percent and so have instances of fraud and abuse. RT Correspondent Liz Wahl reports.
