Texas Week

November 25, 2011 | The Faces of Hunger

Video duration: 28:30

On a day when most of us are recovering from the biggest meal of the year we are reminded of those who are living with hunger. The recession is being blamed for the problem and also for the dramatic increase in the number of Texans receiving food stamps. We will take a look at food programs for those in need and will enlist the help of a renowned photographer to show us the faces of hunger.
