New Survey On Hunger Reveals One In 10 Adults Goes Without A Basic Need To Provide Food For Another Family Member

"The benefits of taking an intergenerational approach to issues, such as hunger, cannot be overstated," said Donna Butts, executive director of Generations United. "Hunger knows no age limits, and its eradication will require people of all ages working together to find solutions. This [Hunger and Nutrition] report offers important examples of such efforts. It's heartening to see the deep connections older and younger generations make as they work together on a common goal. At Generations United, we believe policies fragmented by age cause problems that can only be solved when we address them across age groups, and this report certainly bears that out."

"With this report, we want our policymakers to see all sides of the hunger issue: who's hungry; why people are unable to afford nutritious food; how individuals and communities are coping; and what the various sectors of society need to do to help."

The National Press Club event was co-sponsored by DC Central Kitchen, Feeding America, Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) and Share Our Strength. The event was made possible by the support of Atlantic Philanthropies, AARP, Matz, Blancato, & Associates and MetLife Mature Market Institute.

* Survey Methodology

Harris Interactive® fielded the study on behalf of Generations United from September 24-26, 2012 via its Harris Poll QuickQuery(SM) online omnibus service, interviewing a nationwide sample of 2,397 U.S. residents age 18 years or older; 303 respondents from this survey sought or received food assistance in the past 12 months. Figures for age, sex, race/ethnicity, education, region, household income, and age of children in the household were weighted where necessary to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the population. Propensity score weighting was also used to adjust for respondents' propensity to be online.
