Last year, as corporate profits grew at their most rapid clip since 1950, a record number of Americans got food stamps.

One in six Americans is hungry. Children? One in five. Feeding America, the country's biggest network of food banks, in 2006 helped feed 25 million people — in 2010, 37 million.

Who's hungry?

It's former homeowners who now live in apartments, or cars, or outside. It's their kids. It's men who live in tents in the woods. It's the elderly whose fixed incomes used to be sufficient, barely, but now are not. Electric light or food? Running water or food? Prescriptions or dinner? A roof or a meal? Pick.

"It's everyone," said Ross Fraser, a spokesman for Feeding America. "We're seeing a new face of hunger: a lot of people who've had the rug pulled out from under them."
