Wednesday, November 16, 2016

States around the country are leaving hundreds of millions of dollars designated to feed hungry children on the table and in some cases, they don’t even know the funding exists. Chef Andy Husbands points out that the wasted money not only feeds children it pays local farmers. Judy Ann Bigby, director of the Harvard Medical School Center of Excellence in Women’s Health, connects the lack of healthy food in the food deserts of low-income neighborhoods with the disturbing rise in diabetes and cancer.
