I write this with the idea in mind that one strong voice can make a loud and long-lasting statement. September was Hunger Action Month and many of you may have noticed the status updates on Facebook, Twitter feeds and various other social media outlets showing support for this movement. One thing I’m sure you have noticed is all of the talk surrounding the House passing a bill that could ultimately cut $39 billion from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps), which would result in more than 1.5 billion meals lost in 2014 for Americans everywhere who struggle with food insecurity. “Food Insecurity” by definition means, “Limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods or limited or uncertain ability to acquire acceptable foods in socially acceptable ways” (Feeding America, 2009). As a nation our “food insecurity” rate is 16.4 percent which means 50,120,000 Americans face the reality of true hunger every day, here in Macon County that number is 15.9 percent or 5,350 residents (30.6 percent of children in Macon County or 1,930 food insecure children).
