Here is my own summary of this source.  Alaimo and friends from Michigan State University published a study examining the correlation between “family income [and] food insufficiency among US preschool and school-aged children.” They found that children with low income were more likely to have poorer health and iron deficiency than high income children. These children were also more likely to be food insufficient and “have poorer health status.” The children also suffered more “stomachaches and headaches than food-sufficient children.” The study concludes by stating that low income and food insufficiency should be regarded as a health concern among US school children.

I found it perfect for proposing a UW-wide food drive.
