|A new report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows that household hunger remained steady from 2009 to 2010, even though almost 49 million people -- a near record number -- were affected by food insecurity. Some states even saw their hunger rates decline. In Texas, however, the three-year average food insecurity rate did increase, from 17.4% in 2007-2009 to the current rate of 18.8% in 2008-2010, according to the Austin-based Center for Public Policy Priorities.|
