USA TODAY April 16, 2014 *Hunger is a ‘silent crisis’ in the USA
Marisol Bello

Tianna Gaines Turner can’t remember the last time she went to bed without
worrying about how she was going to feed her three children.

She can’t remember the last time she woke up and wasn’t worried about how
she and her husband would make enough in their part-time jobs to buy
groceries and pay utilities on their apartment in a working-class section
of Philadelphia.

And she can’t remember the last time she felt confident she and her husband
wouldn’t have to skip meals so their children could eat.

Twenty-eight hundred miles away in a middle-class section of Van Nuys,
Calif., similar worries press on Nikki Maxwell and her husband. The two
lost their jobs during the recession and now work part time making half
their former income.
