Annual April Fools’ Day Release Cancelled
Hunger Free America cancelled its annual April Fools’ Day press release in 2018, stating, “Nothing right now is funnier or more absurd than reality.”
P.S. – Despite the fact that the combined net worth of the 400 wealthiest Americans is now $2.7 trillion, according to Forbes, 41 million Americans, including 13 million U.S. children, struggle against hunger, according to USDA. At the same time, the G.O.P. is seeking to slash food aid to low-income Americans. Those facts are true, but not very funny.
