Summary
In this book, Eisinger seeks to unravel the puzzle of America's hunger. He asserts that unlike problems such as drug use, teenage pregnancy, or crime, this is a problem that can be solved. He believes that the perception of hunger and responses to it emerge from a complex intellectual, political, and social context. He searches for a meaningful definition of hunger and examines the structure and funding of government food assistance programs, the roles of Congress and community interest groups, and the contributions of volunteer organizations. He concludes by offering ideas to reduce the nation's perplexing hunger problem, based on creating stronger partnerships between public and private food programs
