In the news recently...
Here is quick, and incomplete, look at some recent news events that are relevant to our mission...
9.1% unemployment? It's actually closer to 16%...
And as the unemployment rate rise, so does the number of people receiving food stamps; currently 1 in 7 Americans do...
- Here's an example for St. Paul, MN
If you aren't aware of what is currently happening in Africa, start paying attention.
- A little background...
- Even the emergency food supplies are almost gone...
How do we stop hunger worldwide? Try a bit of prevention. (This applies to a wide variety of things, and while not as exciting, is significantly cheaper than response)
Could more small farms help too? Some people think so...
What is the impact of increasing food prices? Question asked, question answered.
You may have heard about the recent Heritage Foundation report on the poor. Here's a bit of balance
Racial disparity in our foster care system? Unfortunately it's a national problem. Here is a report on the situation in Rhode Island
Unfortunately this barely scratches the surface... Food security and hunger are just symptoms of much larger systemic issues that need to change. We need to rethink the priorities of government and to rethink our own priorities. Let's keep working together to be the change that we want to see in this world
