Food Assistance

According to the USDA 101 million Americans receive food assistance from the 15 USDA food supplement programs – That’s 1 in 3

According to the CDC 69.2% of adults are overweight or obese.
Given the two statistics above it is difficult to believe that lack of food is a problem in the US.  Indeed the statistic would indicate that affordable food is too plentiful.  Are we (the government) contributing to the obesity problem with our food assistance programs?
