PHILADELPHIA, PA - OCTOBER 23:  Food is served at Broad Street Ministry (BSM) during their afternoon lunch for the homeless and those that are in financial distress on October 23, 2014 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. BSM serves thousands of free meals five days per week while also providing the homeless with a mail center, a clothes mending facility, counseling and medical screening.Philadelphia, one of the nations largest and most historic metropolitan areas, has become poorest big city in America. It also has the highest rate of deep poverty in America - those with incomes below half of the poverty line - of any of the nation's 10 most largest cities. While much of downtown Philadelphia is vibrant with exceptional restaurants, museums and nightlife, many areas immediately outside the center are mired in multi-generational deep poverty.
