German Poverty

Some 5 million people (7.5 percent ) in Germany, the EU's wealthiest country, lack the money for a nutritious meal every other day.

Almost a third of unemployed persons in Germany are unable to regularly eat a nutritious meal.

 Roughly 21 million, or 30.4 percent — are not in the position to afford an unexpected expense of €1,000 ($1,140), such as paying for car repairs or a new washing machine. The percentage of unemployed Germans who couldn't pay an unexpected cost of that amount was 80 percent.
