The Food Research and Action Center (FRAC), based in Washington DC, is "working to improve public policies and public-private partnerships to eradicate hunger and under-nutrition in the US...[as it] works with hundreds of national, state and local nonprofit organizations, public agencies, and corporations to address hunger and its root cause, poverty." Visitors to the FRAC website will find that the "Hunger in the U.S." link located in the middle green box on the homepage has a lot of good information on hunger that many people may be unfamiliar with, including a definition of "Hunger and Food Insecurity" and how it is typically measured. The link to the 2010 Anti-Hunger Policy Conference Presentations at the bottom left of the homepage allows visitors to view PowerPoint presentations on such topics as "Running on Empty: Nutritional Access for Children in Cook County, IL", "Making the Case for Anti-Hunger Priorities in Tight State Budgets", and "Obesity, Poverty and Hunger". The Disaster Food Resources link informs visitors of the extra food stamps made available to food stamp recipients in a disaster situation, as well as the disaster food stamps that are made available to those who do not normally receive food stamps.
