I live in the U.S. and this would be a big deal to me. Sadly in some parts of the world it may be an everday thing for some. There have been a couple of time that I had to skip lunch because I was away from home and didn't have any money. But I did have food waiting for me at home. I am embarrassed to admit the self pity I had because of this. There have also been times I have survived on rice, beans , home made bread and sometimes what I could forage on my own. Things like sorrel, fennel and bay leaves. Those situations were because of poor choices and an unhealthy life style on my part. I wouldn't say I went hungry though. So I am voting no. I have never gone more than a few hours of being hungry because I couldn't afford food. I have also fasted for 3 or more days but that is by choice and an entirely different thing. What about you?
