Random thoughts

Some random things heard this week...

******

WIC (the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and
Children) ow serves 50% of the babies born in New York State.

******

1 out of 6 New York State residents struggled to
afford enough food in 2014.

******

1 in 5 children in New York State live in households that lack access to
enough nutritionally adequate food to live an active, healthy life.

******

1 in 13 seniors (60+) in New York State are at risk of hunger.

******

And not another statistic, but truly a thought on the issue...

The opposite of hunger is not fullness, it is health.

If we care about the health of our communities' children, our workforce, and our seniors, ensuring adequate healthy food for all is a good first step!
