Greg Kaufmann's latest blog for The Nation,  This Week in Poverty: Hunger—Where We Are, Where We Need to Be highlights the newest Children's HealthWatch report, The SNAP Vaccine: Boosting Children's Health as well as a new study "Toxic Stress and Child Hunger Over the Life Course: Three Case Studies", published in the current issue of the Journal of Applied Research on Children by the Center's director, Mariana Chilton and Witnesses to Hunger Program Manager, Jenny Rabinowich.

The blog also highlights the Food Research and Action Center's Food Hardship in America: 2011 report. Both FRAC and Children's HealthWatch reports were released earlier this week, alongside the national Anti-Hunger Policy Conference hosted by FRAC in Washington, D.C.
