Salt Lake City, UT – 1 out of every 10 people in the state of Utah are living in poverty. Many are working at low-wage jobs, and still find the daily challenge of putting enough food on the table to be daunting. Doug Fabrizio talks to NPR's Rural Correspondent Howard Berkes about the face of hunger in America. Also joining the conversation are Glen Bailey of Crossroads Urban Center and Gina Cornia of Utahns Against Hunger.
