Hunger: A Massive Problem in LA County

Hosted by

Los Angeles County has 1.7 million hungry residents, so many that food banks are struggling to keep up with the need. Because of state laws, almost half don't know they're eligible for food stamps the federal government pays for. We hear what the County's doing to make some improvement. Also, the voices of angry Dodgers' owner Frank McCourt and Thomas Schieffer, the smooth-talking Texan sent by Major League Baseball to operate the franchise. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, the Space Shuttle Endeavour has some last-minute business before it comes to LA.
