There are more than 46 million Americans living below the poverty line, according to Sojourners magazine. At least 16 million of those are children. Fully one out of every four children in the United States lives in poverty. Locally, our numbers are better than many, but we still had nearly 600,000 Minnesotans living below the poverty line in 2010 (the most recent figures readily available).
