How A Heroine Fights Hunger From Her Humble Home

Kathy Prater feeds hungry families in her community.
“It started six years ago at the Countryside mobile home park where she lives,
a well-kept neighborhood of modern doublewides with many older residents.
On bingo nights, Prater discovered that some people were cleaning out the
refreshments afterward because they had no food at home.
“I checked it out,” she said, and learned that people were in fact going hungry
in her neighborhood. “I said, ‘Not on my watch, you’re not.'”

No More Hunger In America. Mission Accomplished.

Hungrr doesn’t want to get political but it seems the new-speakers are at it again. According to the USDA, the government does not want to use the word hunger any longer to describe hunger. The new terminology for hunger is “very low food security.”

While curiously, New Hampshire’s Food Banks’ report demand for food is up 35 percent and inventory is down by 46 percent compared to last year.
