The facts on hunger??

I just read again for the umpteenth time that 14.5% of U.S. faces chronic hunger, and even more don't make enough to feed their family day in and day out.  This according to USDA.  Yet I hear adds for a charity(don't remember the name)  that $1 will provide 7 meals, and the feeding america program where Monsanto matches farmers donations says $1 can feed 3 people.  We also have 48million people receiving SNAP benefits. 

 

To me the numbers don't add up.  Does anyone else see this?  Or am I missing something?  Can someone enlighten me??
