The news comes from 9to5Mac's Mark Gurman, a journalist with a solid track record of breaking Apple news

Picture a place where hunger runs rampant: You're probably seeing a desert climate — likely in Africa — and in your head you're probably hearing reruns of TV commercials asking for your help as dramatic music plays.
Although the suffering populations and decrepit structures are tough images to look at, there's a certain comfort in knowing that those problems are worlds away.
But what if they aren't?
In the United States, there are nearly 50 million people — 16% of the population — who cannot find food on a consistent basis.
Memphis is Patient Zero in the fight against American hunger, topping the charts for both poverty and food insecurity in cities. A 2010 Gallup Poll pronounced the Bluff City as the hungriest in the nation, and according to a 2014 report from the U.S. Mayor's Conference, Memphis dwarfs all other cities when it comes to the percentage of unmet need for food assistance — a jarring 46%.
