Food insecurity is something that no one, and no child, should ever have to experience. Lack of food and nourishment impacts our ability to correctly process and handle what is happening around us. It can make people desperate, in ways that are harmful to themselves, their families, and their community. It cripples the learning ability in children. Many food programs are only in the schools – and therefore drop during days off, holidays, and seasonal breaks. We need a robust year-round program that feeds families in need.
