“Eat the Poor” will take a satirical look at poverty in the 21st century– a golden era when the designation “Millionaire,” having lost both its luster and its meaning, needed to be replaced by a new category: the simple yet apt “Super-Rich.”
Interesting are the statistics of US population under poverty and the statistics on poverty & food wastage in America:
* 35.9 million people live below the poverty line in America including 12.9 million children.
* 3.5 percent of U.S. households experience hunger. Some people in these households frequently skip meals or eat too little, sometimes going without food for a whole day. 9.6 million people, including 3 million children, live in these homes (source).
* On average, American households waste 14 percent of their food purchases.
* Almost 100 billion pounds of food is wasted in America each year. 700 million hungry human beings in different parts of the world would have gladly accepted this food. (source)
