Tom Colicchio Fights Hunger & Pushes For Better School Lunches

More than 49-million Americans do not have consistent access to decent food...and just go hungry. That's 1-in-6. The highest number since the government began tracking what it calls food insecurity over a decade ago.

Blame high unemployment...blame high food prices.... But an even more alarming statistic…1-in-4 children lives in a home without adequate food in the fridge. Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio, his wife, and others are documenting families who worry about where their next meal is coming from. Here's a portion of his conversation with CNN's Kyra Phillips.

Watch CNN Newsroom with Kyra Phillips M-F from 9-11am ET.

    most of the time when one child bullies another it is because of their own insecurities. It up to the parent to be involved with a child not just to find out if they are being bullied but is it possible that they themselves are bullies.
