This piece is about how their are starving children and families in america and other countries. Also it provides information on the topic that concerns why people should show more interest on kids who doesn't have enough to eat or is in poverty.

Starving families Is important because kids are dying everyday by thousands because they are in poor living conditions or they aren’t getting fed enough. Home are going through poverty and other homes are food insecure. Over 40 Million people live in poverty which is 13% of americans. ( no kids hungry page 1) Many other countries around the world are also dying because they don’t have enough food to provide for everyone,The Hispanic and African American households are usually the ones who goes through hunger the most (families/poverty.com page 1)The FAO and other resources are trying to put together plans to help people and children who cannot provide for themselves.

In america children aren’t getting fed enough or isn’t getting enough food for them and their families. Single mothers or parents are most likely to be food insecure because they are low on profit and are now on the poverty line. On the website “Child Hunger In America”, 22 million kids rely on free lunches from school or reduced prices because the don’t have enough money to eat. Also on the website “world hunger”, it says 12 % of us households are food insecure, they have a limit on resources and they dont have alot of food in their house. 13 million kids in the united states are dehydrated or starving and are dying daily just in the united states and world wide.

In Yemen,kids and adults don’t have enough to eat. According to “ voanews”,says that 85,000 kids a day die there and 5 may die of hunger or diseases. Yemen is suffering badly from hunger because they have little food and the children there are starving soo badly you could see their bones through their skin. Also hunger in Africa is bad, Children there travel miles to find food or water and sometimes the water isn’t fresh. According to the website”voanews”, it states “Hunger is still most severe in Africa, but the largest number of undernourished people live in the Asia-Pacific region.” This conveys that people in the Asian-Pacific regions are starving the most.

Poverty is messing with kids mental and physical behavior. On the website” https://www.apa.org/pi/families/poverty.aspx”, says Children living in poverty are at greater risk of behavioral and emotional problems. Some behavioral problems may include impulsiveness, difficulty getting along with peers, aggression, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and conduct disorder.” This conveys that children who are in a insecure home mentality is worse than kids who is in a stable home and is food secure. Also the website says that Poorer children and teens are also at greater risk for several negative outcomes such as poor academic achievement, school dropout, abuse and neglect, behavioral and socioemotional problems, physical health problems, and developmental delays.( https://www.apa.org/pi/families/poverty.aspx)

In conclusion, Children and families around the world are suffering from low food sources. There isn’t many sources for the families and there isn’t any sources for families who live in other regions. In all, there should be more people who donates there time or money to help as many children and families as they could worldwide and also in the i United States.
