One in six people in Cook County is struggling with hunger. That's 860,000 men, women and children.

This week on Newsviews, ABC7's Ben Bradley speaks with the executive director and CEO of the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Kate Maehr said that over the last five years they've seen a 70% increase in the number of people turning to food pantries. She said increasingly it's not people who are out of work, but people with jobs.
