Today on Your Call: What are the economic, social and cultural implications of hunger?

Over 50 million Americans, including one in four children, don’t have access to enough nutritious food to live a healthy and active life. What explains this hunger epidemic? And what will it take to eradicate it? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
