Poor America: 'Some Kids Are Making Ketchup Soup'

Panorama's Hilary Andersson comes face to face with the reality of poverty in America and finds that, for some, the last resort has become life in a tented encampment .

Panorama's Hilary Andersson travels to a school in Las Vegas to meet some of America's youngest poor.

It's heartbreaking to hear these small children tell of their lives after school. Kids pocketing packets of ketchup from the school cafeteria to make soup with at home. Children who don't have dinner at home because there is no food. One tiny girl who quietly told about running out of food at home, and how the family had to eat rats.

Inexcusable in a nation where so many have so much more than they could ever need.
