On Tuesday, January 28, President Barack Obama will give his annual State of the Union address to the nation. The president is expected to focus on ways to strengthen the nation, including reducing inequality and poverty and increasing economic growth. These are complex objectives, but they include a key element that, if history is a guide, the president will not mention: ending childhood hunger. Solving that will make numerous other national goals (i.e education, reducing income inequality) more achievable.
