With little money to spare for food, many in our com- munity — friends, family, coworkers — often go with- out food for meals at a time and have no other choice than to purchase the cheapest, sometimes expired, groceries to feed themselves and their families. Children who face hunger are more likely to struggle in school and experience developmental setbacks. Kids who struggle to get enough to eat also face high- er risks of health conditions like anemia and asthma.
