CNN reports on staggering 46 million people living on food stamps while homeless “Tent City” camps are popping up across the nation including one right near my own house.
CNN reviews the staggering number of Americans on food stamps. The video explains how those in poverty that rely on the government program are helpless to attain non-edible necessities which are not covered.
While 46 million people are on food stamps another sign of rampant poverty is the outbreak of homeless people making new homes in makeshift shelters in forests around the nation.
These villages of destitute people are often given the name “Tent City”. Recently, Tent City In Lakewood, NJ was covered in the UK’s Daily Mail news paper.
