Hunger has become practically invisible in the developed world. We rarely encounter it face to face. If we do see hunger on our television screens, it is likely to be on the face of a child. It is through the eyes of a hungry child that we can best understand the incredibly debilitating nature of hunger, its erosion of a child’s body, mind, and future. Countless millions of children have enjoyed the most basic of human rights, the right to food and education, thanks to the dedication and vision of George McGovern.
