The Citizens' Crusade Against Poverty through its chairman, Walter Reuther, established this Board of Inquiry to conduct an objective inquiry into: 1. The scope of starvation and hunger in selected poverty areas throughout the country; 2. The extent of nutritional knowledge at medical schools, among medical practitioners, and within the United States Public Health Service; 3. The extent and quality of public and private programs now under way to meet this need; 4. Immediate strategy recommendations to deal with the problem; and 5. Long-range recommendations to attack the basic causes of the problem.
