Hunger ‘more widespread than many realize’

PovertyIn a season of plenty, in a land of plenty, many people still go hungry. CFAES’s Martha Filipic reports, “According to the Children’s Hunger Alliance, more than 630,000 children across Ohio live in food-insecure households — enough children to fill Ohio Stadium six times. As many as 1 in 4 Ohio children are unsure of where their next meal is coming from.” But there are ways to help. Read her story.

    Hi – Thanks so much for picking up this (unhappy) topic – it’s really important that we remain aware of less fortunate people while we feast our way through the holiday season. I think it’s great to donate to food banks, as Martha suggests, but we should also think about long-term solutions. Permaculture is one way that we could potentially ensure a surplus of food for everyone, everywhere. If we all stopped growing grass lawns and started growing food… we’d actually have too much… Thanks again – Michael
