All You Can Eat? How Hungry is America in Good Times versus Recession?

http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2009/02/recovery_animation.html ?t is insane, and morally bankrupt, for a nation with this much wealth to allow [hunger] to continue,?said Jim Weill, president of the Food Research and Action Center, at a Center for American Progress event Friday morning. At the event, CAP Policy Analyst Joy Moses led a panel discussion on the importance of a new U.S. commitment to end food insecurity and hunger for all Americans. Panelist Joel Berg, executive director of the New York City Coalition Against Hunger and author of All You Can Eat: How Hungry is America?, noted that in 2007, more than 36.2 million Americans either did not have enough food or feared they would not have enough at some point during the year. ?unger,?he said, ?hould be on the same level as what people thought about cholera, malaria, and yellow fever. These have all been eradicated with the government's help.?Berg added that with the aid of the federal government, hunger can be eradicated in a few short years. Federal programs have already made progress. The establishment of food safety net programs, or federal aid and entitlement packages aimed at assisting in the purchase of food for hungry families, has helped to stem the prevalence of starving children that once filled the streets in the early 20th century. Today's hunger problems require targeted assistance. ?urrent food insecurity,?Weill noted, ?s often a choice between food and rent, or between food and health care.?As a result, policies focused on bolstering support for poor and working-class families will have the largest effect on hunger. Weill noted that hunger experts ?lmost unanimously agree we need to boost food stamp programs. Dollar for dollar, they have the best value.?Congress has clearly taken note. The version of the recovery package recently passed by the House of Representatives includes $20 billion over two years for food stamp costs. These additional funds would allow for an increase

JFK, Barack Obama & Religion in Presidential Politics

http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/culture/religion In 1960, John F. Kennedy was elected the first Catholic president of the United States. How did Kennedy approach religion--and what can we learn from his campaign about the role of religion in politics today? Are there parallels between Kennedy's approach to religion and Obama's? What role did Catholic and evangelical voters play in both elections? How has the politics of religion changed since 1960? Would Kennedy's response to his religious critics suffice today? Join E.J. Dionne and Shaun Casey for an illuminating and provocative discussion of Casey's new book, The Making of a Catholic President: Kennedy vs. Nixon 1960. Copies of The Making of a Catholic President will be available for sale at the event. Featured Author: Shaun Casey, Wesley Theological Seminary Discussion Moderated by: E.J. Dionne, Jr., Brookings Institution and Op-Ed Columnist, Washington Post Introduction by: Sally Steenland, Center for American Progress
