One in 20 Latinos in the US regularly goes hungry and as many as one in five does not have proper access to nutritious food

BBC News:

Poverty and lack of awareness about state entitlements are the causes, says the study by Hispanic civil rights group the National Council of La Raza.

Immigrants also face a series of linguistic, legal and cultural obstacles in accessing enough food.

Latinos are the biggest single minority group in the United States.

The study said the "food insecurity" rate of Hispanics is nearly as high as that of non-Hispanic blacks.

If La Raza is so concerned about Hispanic hunger in the US, they are free to buy food with some of their Ford Foundation party money.

Funny that every Hispanic that I've ever seen has been as fat as hell.
