A study on hunger contends that 20 million Americans do not get enough to eat every day, and the head of the task force that drew up the report blamed the Reagan Administration. "I think the main point that we draw is that supply-side economics has failed as a remedy for hunger," said Larry Brown, a professor at the Harvard School of Public Health. The study by the Physician Task Force on Hunger in America concluded that despite 58 months of steady economic expansion, millions of Americans still do not get enough to eat--especially infants, the elderly and former blue-collar workers who have dropped out of manufacturing into the service sector.
