One in five children will go to bed hungry tonight.
Now there is a national campaign which targets poor inner city families and teaches them how to shop for nutritious food that is also affordable.
The non-profit group "Share Our Strength" runs the "Cooking Matters" campaign. Among their shopping secrets for saving money and eating healthy is reading nutrition labels and shopping with a grocery list.
"Cooking Matters" also promotes cooking at home which will not only help you save money, but perhaps live longer too.
The campaign also teaches families how to prepare food so it can stretch into two meals.
