One Response to “50 Million Americans Don’t Have Enough Food, USDA Says”
We need to teach people how to get their own food instead of just giving them food. Our society will not sustain for long when we just give the food away. Give a man a fish and he eats for a day, teach a man to fish and he will not go hungry. When did we loose this? The government has given to the point that they have cause people to forget how to sustain themselves. How sad this is. The government needs to reconsider their position on teaching children how to garden and grow their own food and their position on home gardens. I remember reading articles in the 20-50 where the government supported and pushed people to grow community gardens, now I read articles where the government is looking down on this. Local public schools can’t even have organic gardens to provide fresh healthy produce for the students. This article is sad, but our government put us here, it is up to us to get us out. Are we going to depend on a corporate government that is only interested in their bottom line rather than their citizens? I know that I am not!
