Struggling to put food on the table in China

Amid rising food prices, poor families in urban areas are finding it hard to put together a square meal.

    World food prices remain high, partly due to the failure of the soybean crop in North America, and droughts in several parts of the world.

    China is not immune to the steep increases in food prices, and poor families in urban areas there are struggling to put meals on their tables.
