Hunger and food insecurity plagues America, not only morally, but also financially -- and in a major way.

This is according to a new report issued by Bread for the World Institute, the policy research arm of the Christian anti-hunger advocacy organization Bread for the World.

The report, “Nourishing Effect: Ending Hunger, Improving Health, Reducing Inequality,” finds that America's hunger health costs tally up to a staggering $160 billion annually.
