In line for bread during Great Depression This helped the homeless people in towns and cities but didn't get very far a field into the farms and rural homeless. some people fell through the cracks. Lyndon Johnson made some important actions toward making the hunger problem easier but now in 2013 hunger has noticed to have gotten down to the children and if we didn't have free food at school many children would not have any real food. Thank you Pres. Johnson
