El Diario/La Prensa, Posted: Oct 09, 2008

NEW YORK A new study concludes that the economic crisis is having devastating effects on some New Yorkers, especially children. The report, titled "Child Hunger: The Unhealthy Return On Missed Investments," was released by the Food Bank and found that one of every five children in New York City (50 percent higher than the national average) lives in poverty and that one of every four children requires assistance from emergency food programs. The Food Bank reports that it helped feed 397,000 New York families in 2007, a 48 percent increase from 2004.
