    An organisation in the US state New Hampshire is finding new ways to feed hungry children.

    Claire Bloom of End 68 Hours of Hunger told Al Jazeera: “We know there are 16 million hungry children in America, one in every five. Feeding 3,000 is a big number to us, but in the whole scheme of things, it’s not a big number.”

    Al Jazeera’s Alan Fisher reports from Dover, New Hampshire.
