In San Francisco, one of every five children is at risk of going hungry and the numbers are similar in other Bay Area counties. As the holiday season begins, food bank and soup kitchen operators are reporting a spike in the number of families that are seeking food. We talk with officials from several Bay Area food agencies about the need they're seeing and how people can help.
