Hunger hits everywhere and the US is not immune to it. For me personally when I found out how big the hunger problem in United States actually was it blew my mind. I never would have imagined that 1 in 6 Americans struggle with hunger. Or that 1 in 4 children routinely do not get enough to eat. For me Ive always considered hunger a third world problem and would have never guessed it being a problem of that magnitude in a country like America where Ive been spending more time than I have at home these past years. -Avicii
