“We don’t talk about hunger because solving it is so big and complex. Its solutions entail making a college education more affordable and accessible; revamping our national farm policy to favor production of nutritious foods; promoting economic development to raise wages that currently cannot support families. We will need to reform a federal public assistance program that is insufficient and, paradoxically, creates dependency by penalizing recipients for trying to get ahead. Each of those is a serious challenge that will take years to accomplish.”

    I agree about hunger being a big and complex problem … but the good news is, we know what the solutions are. Yes, they are big undertakings; yes, it may take decades to get there; but yes, there are dedicated people that are working every day to educate, advocate, and most of all find food for the hungry right here in our communities. Thank you for helping keep a high profile on the issue of hunger in America.
