The videos below explore the scope, scale, causes of food insecurity, along with established and innovative solutions to ending hunger in our lifetime.
Food Insecurity in the U.S.: Problems, Programs, and POlicy
Taking action to end hunger starts with understanding the problem. This short video breaks down food insecurity in the U.S.—the scope of the problem, its root causes, and federal policies that combat hunger. Throughout, you'll hear first-person stories from people who have been personally affected by hunger and poverty, and have used their experience to become effective advocates. (10:15)
We also offer an accompanying Discussion Guide for volunteer coordinators, student or faith organizations, and other small groups to explore the themes covered in the video.
