Food Banks in the U.S. Running Low on Supplies… Ominous Sign for 2013
On a day when many will gorge excessively, some will starve still. Giving thanks for the simplest of staples is hard for many (and getting harder). As a result of the drought this summer the Federal government ended up buying less food than normal, and because this excess food is used to provide assistance to the poor in many cases, there simply may not be enough to go around. This sets up a potentially tragic situation as we head into 2013, and is likely to bring heightened social unrest to our shores as we outlined in my recent article The Global Spring.
