US schools fight food insecurity

School children in the US are returning to their classes and to meals they may not be able to afford at home.

    As many as 21 million school children in America are poor. 

    For food, they mainly rely on the government’s feeding scheme.
     
    But during the two-month long summer break, those meals are available to only a small fraction of those suffering from what the government describes as "food insecurity."

    AL Jazeera's Tom Ackerman reports from Baltimore.
