And the folks at the Hunger Relief Task Force are ecstatic!
Here's why: According to the Task Force, "too many in our community are not adequately fed - a basic foundation of a healthy community. Instead, some children rely on a free school lunch as their their healthiest meal of the day. Many older people eat too little to maintain their health and independence. Many working parents skip meals so that their children can eat. Hungry families can be found in every county in Idaho, and the ill effects of hunger touch everyone and every community in some way. A prosperous community is one that addresses the root causes of this most basic indicator—food insecurity. The Cultivate Idaho Initiative looks beyond emergency assistance and explores local food systems, economic development, community support systems, and civic engagement for sustainable solutions to build a food secure and thriving community."
