Anthony Brant once said “ Other things may change us, but we start and end with family.” In the novel, The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, the Walls family is non-reliable.

School’s Out for Summer-how effective is it? In Anna Quindlen’s essay, “School’s Out for Summer,” summer lunch programs have helped contribute to the battle against child hunger in America. The writer effectively uses ethos, logos, and pathos to persuade the reader that the problem exists. Moreover, its effectiveness is rather successful in conveying the importance and the presence of this issue.
Structure and Proofreading are Important Hungry children, humiliated parents, and confused focus groups; all things involved in Anna Quindlen ’s essay “School’s Out for Summer,” but how do these things tie in? In her essay, Quindlen effectively uses evidence to support her claim that hunger is a significant problem in America, particularly with children during the summer, yet she fails to make a cohesive argument with her eclectic evidence and fails to acknowledge and refute any noteworthy counterclaim. First and foremost, her argument is most definitely towards persuading people that child hunger is a problem that needs to be recognized and changed, not only in poor countries, but in the heart of the west; the United States. She starts out with giving the example that focus groups unanimously thought that child hunger would not happen here; “not in America.”
Did you know that 1 in 5 U.S. kids don’t get the food they need every day? This negatively impacts kids’ health and development, but this can also negatively impact them academically as well as emotionally and socially. No Kid Hungry is an organization that is making a difference regarding this problem. No Kid Hungry was founded by Billy Shore and his sister Debbie Shore in 1984. Since then, No Kid Hungry has raised and invested more than $528 million in the fight against hunger, and has won the support of national leaders in business, government, health and education, sports, and entertainment.
School’s Out for Summer Why is it that many families struggle with buying food and feeding their children? Is it because of how much money a person of that family is making? Author Anna Quindlen tries to prove a point explaining how many families suffer from hunger due to minimum wage and summer vacation. From the beginning, she explains how most children are left with so little food over the summer and are not able to eat as much as they could during school or over the summer lunch programs. This statement will be ineffective in persuading others reading this because some children and or adults are given the opportunity to eat more over the summer.
Nicholas Kristof is a two-time Pulitzer prizewinning books and “Prudence or Cruelty” was feature in the New York Times in 2013. In “Prudence or Cruelty” it discuss the potential of ridding our society of food stamps to help boost our economy. Children everyday wonder when, not what, their next meal will be. As sad as it sounds, but “5 percent of American households have very low food security” (Kristof 172).

Summary Response Paper #1 In “Poor Shaming-But This Time in the School Cafeteria”, author Shayna Cook introduces the idea of inequality in the lunchroom. The term Lunch Shaming is defined as “...a general term referring to when a student is singled out and embarrassed or ashamed due to them or their parents not being able to pay for school lunches, or if they have any unpaid lunch debt.” This idea is becoming very familiar to students in New Mexico schools, although it is not limited to just them. The article can show the raw realities of what everyday children are facing trying to obtain a school lunch and the movement to fix it.
In a country that wastes billions of pounds of food each year, it's almost shocking that anyone in America goes hungry. Yet every day, there are millions of children and adults who do not get the meals they need to thrive. We work to get nourishing food – from farmers, manufacturers, and retailers – to people in need. At the same time, we also seek to help the people we serve build a path to a brighter, food-secure future.
According to dosomething.org, one in five American children face hunger. In theory, this means that in my class of 20 kids, roughly four of them face hunger. According to a CNBC article, 42 million Americans suffer from hunger across the nation. This food insecurity as the Federal Government so kindly puts it, exists in every county in America.
They are only able to eat at school. “The saddest are the children who cry when we get out early for a snow day because they won’t get a lunch.” Some children that’s the one thing they look forward to be to go to school to be able to get a nice breakfast and a decent lunch to eat, and when school lets out early it leaves kids going without food because they don’t have any food at their home. Kids with empty bellies find it hard to focus, they concentrate more on making it to lunch than on a math or a reading lesson. (Pg.58)
To begin with, the taste alone of school lunches is beyond unsatisfactory. The meals provided by public schools are not appetizing. There exists a tangible disconnect between the enticing, nutritious meals advertised on the school board’s menus and what the students actually receive—pathetic portions and lukewarm meals slapped onto a tray. Children’s complaints about school lunches are often seen as trite. However, while common, they are not any less accurate.
People around the world go hungry everyday, but it’s not a normal hungry. 795,000,000 people don’t have enough food to live a healthy life (http://www.foodaidfoundation.org/world-hunger-statistics.html ).

“More than 20 percent of the children live in households without consistent access to food” (“15 Percent of All Children in Illinois”). This is a massive number and shows how much poverty there is in the U.S. When they suffer like this then the results don’t turn out as well. These children don’t know when their next meal would come and
According to the WTN Global Challenges Program Hunger Initiative, 578 million people in Asia and the Pacific , 239 million in Sub-Saharan Africa, 53 million in Latin America and the Caribbean, 37 million in the Near East and North Africa, and 19 million in developed countries are affected by hunger. That equates to about one in every ten people being affected by hunger. According to Dr. Lindsey Shirley, the author of “A Practical Problem Approach to World Hunger: Universities Fighting World Hunger,” since the second half of the 1900s, there has been an increase of about 4 million people per year who do not have enough to eat. These numbers should not be increasing every year, and there should be a solution to stop it (Shirley
