One in eight people in the Las Vegas Valley are unsure about having enough food to eat. That comes from a recent report from Three Square - the valley's wholesale food bank. And if we mean good, healthy fresh food, the number goes even higher. Much of this has been brought about by the recession but those most at risk are children developing.

Three Square Chief Executive Officer Julie Murray talks about the problem and what can be done to fix it, even in these hard economic times.
