High Plains Hunger

“People are hurting,” said Janie Singleton, executive director of the High Plains Food Bank in Amarillo, which distributes food in 26 counties in the Panhandle. “The price of most basic foods has gone up considerably, so it’s hard for many families, especially for those with young children, to make ends meet. “These are people who work but don’t make enough money – anxiously waiting for Congress to approve the farm bill – through the farm bill, the USDA gives food banks some products such as rice, pinto beans, peanut butter, canned vegetables, corn flakes, juices and fruits.”
