Waiting in the Food Line as reported by 60 Minutes 11

(Aired August 2003) Correspondent Scott Pelley reports from the frontlines of another war, a war that, we were surprised to learn, may be more desperate than it's been in years. We look at the war on poverty, the war on hunger, up close and personal. The statistics are disturbing, and the personal stories of some working, church-going Americans who can't afford to feed their families are heartbreaking. 

Food Shortage In The Homeland

(Aired July 2003) It's only mid-morning in Logan, Ohio, but, as CBS News Correspondent Cynthia Bowers reports, some of the food is already running out. Twice a month in this small town on the edge of Appalachia, groceries are given away. You could call it a "line" of the times, because in a growing number of American communities making ends meet means waiting for a handout.  (This was the fourth in a month-long series of reports called "Making Ends Meet" about how families are coping with the tough economy, unemployment and smaller retirement accounts.)
