  • - YOU KNOW, WE NEEDED TO FEED THE FAMILY.
  • 00:00:05.280 --> 00:00:07.120
  • - WHEN I FIRST WENT TO THE FOOD BANK, I CRIED.
  • 00:00:07.140 --> 00:00:10.120
  • I JUST CRIED.
  • 00:00:10.140 --> 00:00:12.020
  • I CRIED BEFORE I WENT IN.
  • 00:00:12.040 --> 00:00:13.270
  • I WAS HUMILIATED.
  • 00:00:13.290 --> 00:00:17.140
  • [ MUSIC ]
  • 00:00:17.160 --> 00:00:30.280
  • [ MUSIC ]
  • 00:00:30.280 --> 00:00:42.260
  • - HELLO, EVERYONE.
  • 00:00:42.280 --> 00:00:43.210

  • 00:00:47.160 --> 00:00:50.070
  • AND RELATED PROBLEMs IN AMERICA.
  • 00:00:50.090 --> 00:00:52.100
  • THEY ARE CALLED FOOD INSECURITY AND POVERTY.
  • 00:00:52.120 --> 00:00:55.130
  • YES, BOTH DO EXIST.
  • 00:00:55.150 --> 00:00:57.260
  • HUNGER IN THE USA, IT'S A VERY REAL PROBLEM, AND
  • 00:00:57.280 --> 00:01:00.120
  • WHEN A PERSON DOES NOT NOWHERE THEIR NEXT MEAL
  • 00:01:00.140 --> 00:01:03.260
  • IS GOING TO COME FROM, WE CALL THAT
  • 00:01:03.280 --> 00:01:06.240
  • FOOD INSECURITY.
  • 00:01:06.260 --> 00:01:08.050
  • MORE THAN 40 MILLION AMERICANS LIVE WITH THIS
  • 00:01:08.070 --> 00:01:11.180
  • INSECURITY EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:01:11.200 --> 00:01:15.100
  • - ONE OF THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES IS THE NUMBER
  • 00:01:15.120 --> 00:01:17.100
  • OF PEOPLE THAT DON'T HAVE RELIABLE ACCESS TO
  • 00:01:17.120 --> 00:01:19.260
  • NUTRITIOUS FOOD, AND THERE ARE 41 MILLION
  • 00:01:19.280 --> 00:01:22.100
  • AMERICANS IN THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES.
  • 00:01:22.120 --> 00:01:24.060
  • THAT INCLUDES 13 MILLION CHILDREN.
  • 00:01:24.080 --> 00:01:26.110
  • - IN THIS SEGMENT OF TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS,
  • 00:01:26.130 --> 00:01:28.160
  • FOOD INSECURITY AND POVERTY, WE ADDRESS THE
  • 00:01:28.180 --> 00:01:33.050
  • CHALLENGES OUR CHILDREN FACE WITH HUNGER.
  • 00:01:33.070 --> 00:01:35.190
  • - CHILDREN IN GENERAL EXPERIENCE FOOD
  • 00:01:35.210 --> 00:01:37.210
  • INSECURITY AND HUNGER.
  • 00:01:37.230 --> 00:01:39.120
  • DISPROPORTIONATELY ONE OUT OF SIX CHILDREN IN
  • 00:01:39.140 --> 00:01:42.080
  • THIS COUNTRY DO, BUT THAT NUMBER DROPS TO ONE IN FOUR
  • 00:01:42.100 --> 00:01:45.020
  • IN MINORITY COMMUNITIES.
  • 00:01:45.040 --> 00:01:47.020
  • - I FEEL LIKE OUR KIDS DON'T KNOW WHERE THEIR MEALS
  • 00:01:47.040 --> 00:01:48.280
  • ARE COMING FROM.
  • 00:01:49.000 --> 00:01:52.230
  • - INADEQUATE FOOD FOR PREGNANT WOMEN CAN
  • 00:01:52.250 --> 00:01:54.230
  • INCREASE THE RISK OF BIRTH COMPLICATIONS AND
  • 00:01:54.250 --> 00:01:57.190
  • LOW BABY WEIGHT.
  • 00:01:57.210 --> 00:01:59.290
  • - I'M AN EXPECTANT MOTHER WITH MY
  • 00:02:00.030 --> 00:02:01.160
  • FIRST CHILD.
  • 00:02:01.180 --> 00:02:02.250
  • I AM WORRIED ABOUT MY CHILD BECAUSE THE FIRST
  • 00:02:02.270 --> 00:02:04.170
  • COUPLE OF MONTHS THEY HAVE TO BE ON MILK.
  • 00:02:04.190 --> 00:02:07.010
  • AND IT'S NOT EASY.
  • 00:02:07.030 --> 00:02:08.120
  • IT'S HARD.
  • 00:02:08.140 --> 00:02:09.150
  • THE PRICES ARE HIGH FOR MILK.
  • 00:02:09.170 --> 00:02:11.080
  • - FOOD INSECURITY AND HUNGER CAN COMPROMISE
  • 00:02:11.100 --> 00:02:12.260
  • THEIR PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT, COGNITIVE
  • 00:02:12.280 --> 00:02:16.050
  • DEVELOPMENT, THEIR ABILITY TO PERFORM AND
  • 00:02:16.070 --> 00:02:19.010
  • LEARN IN SCHOOL AND ULTIMATELY TO SUCCEED
  • 00:02:19.030 --> 00:02:20.250
  • IN LIFE.
  • 00:02:20.270 --> 00:02:24.230
  • - IN AMERICA'S RURAL AND INNER CITY COMMUNITIES,
  • 00:02:24.250 --> 00:02:27.040
  • SMALL WORKING FARMS AND GARDENS ARE HELPING
  • 00:02:27.060 --> 00:02:30.050
  • STUDENTS GET CONNECTED TO FOOD BY HELPING GROW,
  • 00:02:30.070 --> 00:02:34.040
  • HARVEST AND COOK IT.
  • 00:02:34.060 --> 00:02:36.220
  • - WE ARE THE LEADERS IN URBAN FARMING.
  • 00:02:36.240 --> 00:02:39.060
  • WE HAVE CHANGED THE WAY FAMILIES EAT.
  • 00:02:39.080 --> 00:02:41.010
  • - SO WE'RE TEACHING THEM TO BE AGGREGATES OF FOOD
  • 00:02:41.030 --> 00:02:43.190
  • JUSTICE AND TO GROW FOOD FOR THEMSELVES AND
  • 00:02:43.210 --> 00:02:45.240
  • THEIR COMMUNITIES.
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:47.020
  • - WE HAVE A YOUTH RUN FARM.
  • 00:02:47.040 --> 00:02:48.290
  • THEY HAVE TO HARVEST AND PLANT, HOW TO PEST
  • 00:02:49.010 --> 00:02:52.170
  • CONTROL, COMPOSTING, LEARNING TO HARVEST AND
  • 00:02:52.190 --> 00:02:55.140
  • PLANT, EMPOWERING NOT ONLY THEMSELVES BUT
  • 00:02:55.160 --> 00:02:58.080
  • THEIR FAMILY.
  • 00:02:58.100 --> 00:02:59.180
  • - WE'RE GROWING OVER 100 VARIETIES OF
  • 00:02:59.200 --> 00:03:02.120
  • VEGETABLES, HARVESTING, AND MOST OF OUR PRODUCE
  • 00:03:02.140 --> 00:03:05.100
  • IS GOING TO BE DISTRIBUTED TO OUR LOCAL
  • 00:03:05.120 --> 00:03:06.220
  • FOOD PANTRIES, AND OUR GOAL TODAY IS 200 POUNDS.
  • 00:03:06.240 --> 00:03:09.190
  • - FROM THERE IT GOES FROM FAMILIES AND FROM
  • 00:03:09.210 --> 00:03:11.270
  • FAMILIES TO TABLE.
  • 00:03:11.290 --> 00:03:13.100
  • SO WE HAVE IT STRAIGHT FROM THE FARM TO
  • 00:03:13.120 --> 00:03:15.190
  • THE TABLE.
  • 00:03:15.210 --> 00:03:16.270
  • AND USUALLY FAMILIES ACCESS IT IMMEDIATELY.
  • 00:03:16.290 --> 00:03:20.230
  • - A TYPICAL GROWING SEASON IS ABOUT 17 TO
  • 00:03:20.250 --> 00:03:23.260
  • 20.000 POUNDS OF VEGETABLES WE CAN GET FROM A HALF AN
  • 00:03:23.280 --> 00:03:26.220
  • ACRE PLOT.
  • 00:03:26.240 --> 00:03:28.050
  • - SCHOOL MEALS PROGRAMS ALLOW MANY STUDENTS TO
  • 00:03:28.070 --> 00:03:30.210
  • HAVE A STABLE DAILY MEAL.
  • 00:03:30.230 --> 00:03:34.100
  • HOWEVER FOOD INSECURE CHILDREN FACE THE
  • 00:03:34.120 --> 00:03:37.140
  • TOUGHEST DAYS OF THE WEEK ON THE WEEKENDS AND
  • 00:03:37.160 --> 00:03:40.070
  • DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS WHEN SCHOOL IS NOT
  • 00:03:40.090 --> 00:03:43.060
  • IN SESSION.
  • 00:03:43.080 --> 00:03:44.210
  • - WE HAVE THE SUMMER LUNCH PROGRAM THAT WE'RE
  • 00:03:44.230 --> 00:03:46.080
  • A PART OF.
  • 00:03:46.100 --> 00:03:47.170
  • WE SERVE SUMMER LUNCH RIGHT HERE IN
  • 00:03:47.190 --> 00:03:48.240
  • THIS BUILDING.
  • 00:03:48.260 --> 00:03:50.030
  • - THE SUMMER MONTHS WHEN YOU'VE GOT 90 DAYS WHEN
  • 00:03:50.050 --> 00:03:52.040
  • THEY'RE NOT IN SCHOOL AND DON'T BENEFIT FROM SCHOOL
  • 00:03:52.060 --> 00:03:54.230
  • BREAKFAST AND LUNCH PROGRAMS.
  • 00:03:54.250 --> 00:03:56.150
  • - WE'RE TRYING TO SET UP A MOBILE LUNCH PROGRAM
  • 00:03:56.170 --> 00:03:58.160
  • WHERE WE CAN GO TO THOSE PLACES TO GIVE THE KIDS
  • 00:03:58.180 --> 00:04:01.150
  • THEIR LUNCH.
  • 00:04:01.170 --> 00:04:02.270
  • - ON THE WEEKEND, THE DAYS ARE EXTREMELY TOUGH
  • 00:04:02.290 --> 00:04:05.090
  • FOR HUNGRY CHILDREN BECAUSE THEY'RE OUT
  • 00:04:05.110 --> 00:04:06.250
  • OF SCHOOL.
  • 00:04:06.270 --> 00:04:08.030
  • WEEKEND BACKPACK PROGRAMS PROVIDE THE EXTRA HELP
  • 00:04:08.050 --> 00:04:11.140
  • THEY NEED.
  • 00:04:11.160 --> 00:04:12.210
  • - SO THE BACKPACK PROGRAMS IS WHERE EVERY
  • 00:04:12.230 --> 00:04:14.260
  • FRIDAY A KID WILL GET A SACK OF NUTRITIONALLY
  • 00:04:14.280 --> 00:04:17.020
  • BALANCED, KID FRIENDLY FOOD.
  • 00:04:17.040 --> 00:04:18.150
  • THEY TAKE THAT HOME AND OVER THE WEEKEND THAT
  • 00:04:18.170 --> 00:04:22.220
  • HELPS TIDE THEM OVER SO THEY CAN RETURN TO SCHOOL
  • 00:04:22.240 --> 00:04:25.120
  • ON MONDAY READY TO GO.
  • 00:04:25.140 --> 00:04:27.150
  • - WE TRY TO PUT EXTRA FOOD INTO THE WEEKEND
  • 00:04:27.170 --> 00:04:29.180
  • SNACK PROGRAM BECAUSE WE HAVE SIBLINGS THAT ALSO
  • 00:04:29.200 --> 00:04:33.070
  • ARE GOING WITHOUT.
  • 00:04:33.090 --> 00:04:35.000
  • - IN ADDITION TO THAT, MANY OUR MEMBERS
  • 00:04:35.020 --> 00:04:38.200
  • SPECIALLY IN RURAL AMERICA ARE DISTRIBUTING
  • 00:04:38.220 --> 00:04:40.160
  • LARGE QUANTITIES OF FOOD THROUGH SCHOOL BASED PANTRIES
  • 00:04:40.180 --> 00:04:43.240
  • WHERE INSIDE THE 4 WALLS OF THE SCHOOL WHEN PARENTS COME
  • 00:04:43.260 --> 00:04:47.020
  • TO PICK UP THEIR KIDS THEY MAY ALSO GET GROCERIES TO TAKE HOME.
  • 00:04:47.040 --> 00:04:51.170
  • - CHILDREN NEED A BALANCED DAILY DIET OF
  • 00:04:51.190 --> 00:04:54.220
  • NUTRITION TO PROPERLY DEVELOP AND GROW.
  • 00:04:54.240 --> 00:04:57.160
  • - KIDS ARE AT RISK FOR FOOD INSECURITY HERE,
  • 00:04:57.180 --> 00:05:00.200
  • ESPECIALLY FOR GOOD HEALTHY FOOD.
  • 00:05:00.220 --> 00:05:04.050
  • - CHILDREN ARE THE MOST VULNERABLE POPULATION TO
  • 00:05:04.070 --> 00:05:07.090
  • FOOD INSECURITY BECAUSE THEY NEED THAT FULL
  • 00:05:07.110 --> 00:05:09.200
  • PROPER NUTRITION IN ORDER TO GROW, DEVELOP AND
  • 00:05:09.220 --> 00:05:12.050
  • LEARN PROPERLY.
  • 00:05:12.070 --> 00:05:13.190
  • - STUDIES SHOW THAT FOOD INSECURE CHILDREN HAVE A
  • 00:05:13.210 --> 00:05:16.180
  • HEALTH CHALLENGE AND HAVE A HIGHER RISK OF CHRONIC
  • 00:05:16.200 --> 00:05:19.260
  • HEALTH CONDITIONS SUCH AS ANEMIA AND ASTHMA.
  • 00:05:19.280 --> 00:05:23.030
  • - FOR THEIR BODIES TO GROW, THEY NEED THE
  • 00:05:23.050 --> 00:05:26.210
  • FRUITS AND VEGETABLES AND THE MINERALS THAT WE GET
  • 00:05:26.230 --> 00:05:28.090
  • OUT OF THOSE, AND THEY NEED THEM UNPROCESSED.
  • 00:05:28.110 --> 00:05:31.080
  • - IN MANY FOOD BANKS, FOOD EDUCATION AND
  • 00:05:31.100 --> 00:05:33.200
  • COOKING CLASSES ARE HELPING CHILDREN TO MAKE
  • 00:05:33.220 --> 00:05:36.290
  • BETTER DIET CHOICES.
  • 00:05:37.010 --> 00:05:38.180
  • - FOOD EDUCATION IS VERY IMPORTANT EVEN IN THE
  • 00:05:38.200 --> 00:05:43.050
  • HEART LAND.
  • 00:05:43.070 --> 00:05:45.250
  • IF WE TELL OUR CHILDREN WHAT THE FOOD DOES FOR
  • 00:05:45.270 --> 00:05:47.280
  • OUR BODY, I THINK THOSE KIDS LEARNING IT AT A
  • 00:05:48.000 --> 00:05:50.140
  • YOUNGER AGE WOULD ACTUALLY REQUEST THOSE
  • 00:05:50.160 --> 00:05:53.120
  • HEALTHIER FOODS.
  • 00:05:53.140 --> 00:05:55.020
  • - I AM EXCITED AND I'M SMILING BECAUSE I HAVE
  • 00:05:55.040 --> 00:05:57.190
  • SEEN THE DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:05:57.210 --> 00:05:58.260
  • THE KIDS ARE UNDERSTANDING THAT
  • 00:05:58.280 --> 00:06:00.130
  • BROCCOLI IS NOT BAD AFTER ALL.
  • 00:06:00.150 --> 00:06:01.290
  • SQUASH IS A GREAT THING TO HAVE.
  • 00:06:02.010 --> 00:06:04.110
  • - CHILDREN THAT ARE FOOD INSECURE ARE OFTEN HARD
  • 00:06:04.130 --> 00:06:08.190
  • TO SEE.
  • 00:06:08.210 --> 00:06:09.290
  • KNOWING SOME OF THE WARNING SIGNS CAN HELP.
  • 00:06:10.010 --> 00:06:12.250
  • - THERE CAN BE SIGNIFICANT MOOD CHANGES,
  • 00:06:12.270 --> 00:06:14.180
  • IRRITABILITY, KIDS WHO ARE ACTING OUT WHO
  • 00:06:14.200 --> 00:06:17.080
  • OTHERWISE HAD BEEN WELL BEHAVED.
  • 00:06:17.100 --> 00:06:20.020
  • THOSE ARE OFTEN TIMES SIGNS THAT KIDS AREN'T
  • 00:06:20.040 --> 00:06:22.120
  • GETTING ENOUGH TO EAT AND MANIFEST ITSELF IN
  • 00:06:22.140 --> 00:06:25.000
  • BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS.
  • 00:06:25.020 --> 00:06:27.180
  • - SOME OF THE WARNING SIGNS THAT WE CAN LOOK
  • 00:06:27.200 --> 00:06:29.040
  • AT, THE FACT THAT THE CHILD'S STOMACH IS
  • 00:06:29.060 --> 00:06:31.220
  • SOMEWHAT A LITTLE LARGER THAN IT SHOULD.
  • 00:06:31.240 --> 00:06:35.080
  • THAT'S NOT NECESSARILY BECAUSE OF OVER EATING
  • 00:06:35.100 --> 00:06:37.150
  • BUT SOMETIMES OVER EATING WHAT.
  • 00:06:37.170 --> 00:06:40.110
  • - THERE IS A WAR AGAINST HUNGER AND POVERTY RIGHT
  • 00:06:40.130 --> 00:06:44.070
  • HERE IN AMERICA.
  • 00:06:44.090 --> 00:06:45.270
  • AND THE LARGEST NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION ON THE FRONT
  • 00:06:45.290 --> 00:06:49.160
  • LINES OF THAT WAR IS CALLED FEEDING AMERICA.
  • 00:06:49.180 --> 00:06:53.230
  • - FEEDING AMERICA IS THE NATION'S LEADING HUNGER
  • 00:06:53.250 --> 00:06:56.170
  • RELIEF ORGANIZATION, AND WE WORK THROUGH A
  • 00:06:56.190 --> 00:06:59.150
  • NATIONWIDE NETWORK OF 200 MEMBER FOOD BANKS TO FEED
  • 00:06:59.170 --> 00:07:02.200
  • THE HUNGRY.
  • 00:07:02.220 --> 00:07:04.100
  • WE RAISE RESOURCES NATIONALLY FROM MAJOR
  • 00:07:04.120 --> 00:07:07.070
  • COMPANIES AND FROM INDIVIDUALS AND BOTH FOOD
  • 00:07:07.090 --> 00:07:10.170
  • AND FUNDS, AND WE DISTRIBUTE THOSE
  • 00:07:10.190 --> 00:07:12.130
  • RESOURCES THROUGH OUR NETWORK OF MEMBERS.
  • 00:07:12.150 --> 00:07:14.200
  • THEY RAISE RESOURCES LOCALLY AND THEY ALSO
  • 00:07:14.220 --> 00:07:16.290
  • DISTRIBUTE RESOURCES THROUGH SMALL
  • 00:07:17.010 --> 00:07:18.160
  • LOCAL AGENCIES.
  • 00:07:18.180 --> 00:07:19.290
  • - ONE OF THE MOST SURPRISING AREAS OF FOOD
  • 00:07:20.010 --> 00:07:23.200
  • INSECURITY AND POVERTY IN AMERICA TODAY IS IN OUR
  • 00:07:23.220 --> 00:07:26.240
  • NATION'S RURAL COMMUNITIES, IN THE HEART
  • 00:07:26.260 --> 00:07:29.120
  • LAND WHERE WE FARM FOOD FOR THE WORLD WE'RE
  • 00:07:29.140 --> 00:07:32.180
  • FINDING WE ARE NOT FEEDING THE PEOPLE IN OUR
  • 00:07:32.200 --> 00:07:34.240
  • OWN BACKYARDS.
  • 00:07:34.260 --> 00:07:36.260
  • - CONCERNS ME IS THAT IN RURAL AMERICA, THE
  • 00:07:36.280 --> 00:07:40.140
  • NUMBERS OF FOOD INSECURITY HAVE BEEN
  • 00:07:40.160 --> 00:07:42.220
  • GROWING FASTER THAN I THINK IN ANY
  • 00:07:42.240 --> 00:07:44.120
  • OTHER SEGMENT.
  • 00:07:44.140 --> 00:07:45.220
  • - I'D LIKE EVERYBODY IN AMERICA TO KNOW ABOUT
  • 00:07:45.240 --> 00:07:47.180
  • FOOD INSECURITY IN THE HEART LAND IS IN THE
  • 00:07:47.200 --> 00:07:49.290
  • RURAL AREAS HERE THERE IS HUNGER.
  • 00:07:50.010 --> 00:07:52.220
  • THE HUNGER IS VERY VERY REAL.
  • 00:07:52.240 --> 00:07:54.080
  • - WE'RE INCREASINGLY CONCERNED ABOUT RURAL
  • 00:07:54.100 --> 00:07:57.060
  • HUNGER SPECIALLY OVER THE LAST TEN YEARS OR SO IN
  • 00:07:57.080 --> 00:08:00.110
  • THE WAKE OF THE GREAT RECESSION.
  • 00:08:00.130 --> 00:08:02.090
  • - THIS IS FROM THE FOOD PANTRY.
  • 00:08:02.110 --> 00:08:06.100
  • MOST OF THE PEOPLE THAT ARE FOOD INSECURE IN
  • 00:08:06.120 --> 00:08:09.010
  • THESE COMMUNITES ARE ALL WORKING, USUALLY 2
  • 00:08:09.030 --> 00:08:12.110
  • WORKING PARENTS IN THE FAMILY, AND STILL HAVING
  • 00:08:12.130 --> 00:08:16.020
  • A HARD TIME PAYING FOR FOOD.
  • 00:08:16.040 --> 00:08:18.240
  • - IN OUR AREA I WOULD SAY PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:08:18.260 --> 00:08:20.070
  • UNDER EMPLOYED.
  • 00:08:20.090 --> 00:08:21.180
  • WE DO HAVE A LOT THAT ARE FULLY EMPLOYED, BUT IF
  • 00:08:21.200 --> 00:08:25.100
  • THEY HAVE 3 OR 4 KIDS THEY STILL CAN'T MAKE IT.
  • 00:08:25.120 --> 00:08:29.010
  • THERE'S NOT ENOUGH INCOME TO BUY THE FOOD.
  • 00:08:29.030 --> 00:08:32.020
  • - TO A LARGE DEGREE FOLKS WHO ARE STRUGGLING
  • 00:08:32.040 --> 00:08:34.130
  • WITH FOOD INSECURITY HERE IN RURAL AREAS ARE
  • 00:08:34.150 --> 00:08:36.200
  • UNDER EMPLOYED.
  • 00:08:36.220 --> 00:08:38.050
  • THERE ARE A LOT OF INDUSTRIES THAT HAVE
  • 00:08:38.070 --> 00:08:40.250
  • FALTERED, THAT HAVE SHUT DOWN, THAT HAVE LEFT
  • 00:08:40.270 --> 00:08:43.240
  • PEOPLE LIVING IN THESE RURAL COMMUNITIES
  • 00:08:43.260 --> 00:08:45.290
  • STRUGGLING TO FIND WORK THAT PAYS THE LEVEL
  • 00:08:46.010 --> 00:08:47.240
  • THAT THEY REALLY NEED TO THRIVE.
  • 00:08:47.260 --> 00:08:49.160
  • - SINGLE PARENT HEAD OF HOUSEHOLDS, FOR EXAMPLE,
  • 00:08:49.180 --> 00:08:52.060
  • SOMEONE WHO MAY BE ONLY EMPLOYED PART-TIME, HAS
  • 00:08:52.080 --> 00:08:55.070
  • CHILDREN LIVING IN A HOUSEHOLD THEY'RE TRYING
  • 00:08:55.090 --> 00:08:56.210
  • TO CARE FOR, ALL OF THOSE THINGS I THINK CAN
  • 00:08:56.230 --> 00:08:58.250
  • CONTRIBUTE TO MORE ECONOMIC PRESSURE ON THE
  • 00:08:58.270 --> 00:09:02.050
  • HOUSEHOLD AND EXACERBATES SOME OF THOSE TRADEOFFS
  • 00:09:02.070 --> 00:09:04.270
  • THAT WE SEE IN TERMS OF HAVING TO CHOOSE BETWEEN
  • 00:09:04.290 --> 00:09:07.060
  • FOOD AND OTHER BASIC NECESSITIES.
  • 00:09:07.080 --> 00:09:09.170
  • - THE TYPICAL PERSON WE SEE HERE IN RURAL
  • 00:09:09.190 --> 00:09:11.220
  • COMMUNITIES THAT'S FOOD INSECURE, IT'S SENIORS,
  • 00:09:11.240 --> 00:09:14.100
  • IT'S WORKING PARENTS, IT'S KIDS, IT'S VETERANS,
  • 00:09:14.120 --> 00:09:17.120
  • IT'S PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST STRUGGLING TO MAKE A LIVING.
  • 00:09:17.140 --> 00:09:20.130
  • - WE HAVE A LOT OF HUNGRY PEOPLE, AND WE
  • 00:09:20.150 --> 00:09:21.280
  • HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT ARE WORKING MINIMUM WAGE
  • 00:09:22.000 --> 00:09:24.050
  • JOBS THAT DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH INCOME TO BUY
  • 00:09:24.070 --> 00:09:27.160
  • THEIR OWN FOOD, WHAT THEY ACTUALLY NEED.
  • 00:09:27.180 --> 00:09:30.180
  • - THE PARADOX OF FOOD INSECURITY IN THE
  • 00:09:30.200 --> 00:09:32.150
  • HEARTLAND WHERE FOOD IS BEING FARMED IS WHAT FOOD
  • 00:09:32.170 --> 00:09:36.090
  • IS ACTUALLY BEING FARMED AND HOW IT CANNOT FEED
  • 00:09:36.110 --> 00:09:40.040
  • THE PEOPLE WHO ARE LIVING CLOSE TO IT.
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:42.260
  • - RENEE: WHAT'S BEING PRODUCED ON THE FARM IS
  • 00:09:42.280 --> 00:09:45.060
  • NOT FOOD FOR OUR TABLE.
  • 00:09:45.080 --> 00:09:47.280
  • IT IS FOOD FOR CATTLE FEED AND SO FORTH.
  • 00:09:48.000 --> 00:09:51.270
  • - THE IRONY IS THAT SO MUCH OF THE FOOD FOR THIS
  • 00:09:51.290 --> 00:09:54.170
  • WORLD IS PRODUCED IN THE HEARTLAND OF AMERICA, BUT
  • 00:09:54.190 --> 00:09:57.090
  • THAT FOOD PRODUCTION IS FOCUSED ON SOY BEANS AND
  • 00:09:57.110 --> 00:10:01.060
  • CORN AND WHEAT PRODUCTS THAT AREN'T PRODUCTS YOU
  • 00:10:01.080 --> 00:10:04.010
  • CAN TURN AROUND AND FEED YOUR FAMILY.
  • 00:10:04.030 --> 00:10:07.260
  • - RICK AND RENEE FOSTER ARE A TYPICAL RURAL
  • 00:10:07.280 --> 00:10:10.220
  • FAMILY THAT'S FOOD INSECURE.
  • 00:10:10.240 --> 00:10:13.180
  • - RENEE: WE BOTH ENDED UP UNEMPLOYED AND DID
  • 00:10:13.200 --> 00:10:17.240
  • EVERYTHING THAT WE COULD THINK OF AND WENT THROUGH
  • 00:10:17.260 --> 00:10:21.180
  • EVERY BIT OF SAVINGS.
  • 00:10:21.200 --> 00:10:23.220
  • IN OUR HOME, RICK AND I HAD EIGHT CHILDREN,
  • 00:10:23.240 --> 00:10:26.200
  • AND WE'VE JUST RECENTLY ADOPTED TWO GRANDCHILDREN.
  • 00:10:26.220 --> 00:10:33.190
  • - RICK: I ENJOY HUNTING.
  • 00:10:33.210 --> 00:10:35.070
  • WE EAT EVERYTHING THAT WE KILL.
  • 00:10:35.090 --> 00:10:37.150
  • THEN A BUDDY AND I AT THE DNR WILL GET AHOLD OF ANY
  • 00:10:37.170 --> 00:10:40.220
  • ROAD KILL DEER THAT ARE SALVAGEABLE OR POACHED DEER.
  • 00:10:40.240 --> 00:10:45.130
  • THEY BRING IT TO US AND THEN WE'LL
  • 00:10:45.150 --> 00:10:47.230
  • PROCESS IT FROM THERE.
  • 00:10:47.250 --> 00:10:49.180
  • - WE PROBABLY ONLY ATE DEER MEAT FOR THREE YEARS,
  • 00:10:49.200 --> 00:10:53.200
  • SO WE DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING BUT DEER MEAT.
  • 00:10:53.220 --> 00:10:56.080
  • - AND WHEN TIMES GET TOUGH, BEING WILLING TO
  • 00:10:56.100 --> 00:10:59.060
  • ACCEPT HELP FROM OTHERS CAN BE HARD.
  • 00:10:59.080 --> 00:11:03.050
  • - PRIDE IS A VERY POWERFUL PHENOMENON FOR
  • 00:11:03.070 --> 00:11:06.050
  • THEM, AND IT'S NATURAL THAT THEY'RE NOT GONNA
  • 00:11:06.070 --> 00:11:08.020
  • WANT TO ASK FOR HELP BECAUSE THEY'VE BEEN ABLE
  • 00:11:08.040 --> 00:11:09.290
  • TO RELY ON THEMSELVES ALL THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:11:10.010 --> 00:11:11.290
  • - WE'VE GOT THIS AMERICAN WORK ETHIC WHERE
  • 00:11:12.010 --> 00:11:14.150
  • WE FEEL LIKE WE'RE SUPPOSED TO WORK HARD,
  • 00:11:14.170 --> 00:11:16.060
  • PROVIDE FOR OURSELVES AND OUR FAMILIES, AND HERE IN
  • 00:11:16.080 --> 00:11:18.290
  • THE HEARTLAND THAT'S ESPECIALLY STRONG.
  • 00:11:19.010 --> 00:11:20.230
  • PEOPLE ARE USED TO THIS TRADITION OF BEING
  • 00:11:20.250 --> 00:11:24.010
  • SELF-SUFFICIENT, SO FOR SOMEBODY TO REALIZE THAT
  • 00:11:24.030 --> 00:11:26.230
  • THEY'RE IN NEED AND THEN TAKE THAT STEP TO GO TO
  • 00:11:26.250 --> 00:11:29.160
  • VISIT A FOOD PANTRY OR A MEAL SITE, THAT'S A BIG
  • 00:11:29.180 --> 00:11:32.110
  • LEAP, AND IT CAN BE REALLY HARD FOR SOMEBODY
  • 00:11:32.130 --> 00:11:34.120
  • JUST TO SWALLOW THEIR PRIDE AND HAVE THE
  • 00:11:34.140 --> 00:11:37.290
  • COURAGE TO GO DO THAT.
  • 00:11:38.010 --> 00:11:40.030
  • - RICK: WE NEEDED TO FEED THE FAMILY.
  • 00:11:40.050 --> 00:11:41.190
  • I KNEW A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT WERE WORKING THERE,
  • 00:11:41.210 --> 00:11:43.130
  • AND THEY KNEW ME AND MY SITUATION.
  • 00:11:43.150 --> 00:11:45.260
  • SWALLOW YOUR PRIDE.
  • 00:11:45.280 --> 00:11:47.240
  • TAKE THE HELP THAT IS GIVEN.
  • 00:11:47.260 --> 00:11:50.050
  • - RENEE: WHEN I FIRST WENT TO THE FOOD BANK, THERE WAS
  • 00:11:50.070 --> 00:11:52.030
  • NO WAY TO PUT IT OFF BECAUSE THE CUPBOARDS
  • 00:11:52.050 --> 00:11:54.050
  • WERE PRETTY BARE.
  • 00:11:54.070 --> 00:11:55.240
  • WE NEED TO GET A LITTLE BIT OF FOOD IN HERE.
  • 00:11:55.260 --> 00:11:58.010
  • SO I HAD TO GO.
  • 00:11:58.030 --> 00:12:00.190
  • I CRY.
  • 00:12:00.210 --> 00:12:02.020
  • I JUST CRIED, YOU KNOW, JUST I CRIED BEFORE I
  • 00:12:02.040 --> 00:12:06.100
  • WENT IN. I WAS HUMILIATED, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:12:06.120 --> 00:12:12.030
  • SO I LEARNED TO LET GO OF SOME OF THAT PRIDE AND
  • 00:12:12.050 --> 00:12:16.180
  • GET SOME HUMBLENESS AND GO IN THERE.
  • 00:12:16.200 --> 00:12:20.160
  • - JUST ONE VISIT TO A FOOD PANTRY WILL HELP YOU
  • 00:12:20.180 --> 00:12:22.060
  • UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT RESOURCE CAN PROVIDE
  • 00:12:22.080 --> 00:12:24.110
  • TO YOU AND HOW IT CAN HELP YOU.
  • 00:12:24.130 --> 00:12:26.160
  • - RENEE: IT'S THE WELCOMING, THE OPENNESS OF THE
  • 00:12:26.180 --> 00:12:30.160
  • VOLUNTEERS, AND NOT MAKING YOU FEEL JUDGED
  • 00:12:30.180 --> 00:12:33.190
  • OR LOOKED DOWN UPON.
  • 00:12:33.210 --> 00:12:36.090
  • THE LOCAL FOOD BANK HELPS US IMMENSELY.
  • 00:12:36.110 --> 00:12:38.280
  • - RENEE HAS ALSO LEARNED THE LESSON OF
  • 00:12:39.000 --> 00:12:41.040
  • LIVING OFF OF THE LAND.
  • 00:12:41.060 --> 00:12:42.270
  • HER HOME GARDEN HELPS FEED THE FAMILY AND
  • 00:12:42.290 --> 00:12:45.070
  • TEACHES HER CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN ABOUT FOOD,
  • 00:12:45.090 --> 00:12:48.290
  • DIET AND NUTRITION.
  • 00:12:49.010 --> 00:12:51.160
  • - THIS YEAR I HAVE SOME SWEET POTATOES, AND GREEN
  • 00:12:51.180 --> 00:12:55.020
  • BEANS, AND SUMMER SQUASH, AND TOMATOES,
  • 00:12:55.040 --> 00:12:57.170
  • AND BEETS, CABBAGE, RADISHES.
  • 00:12:57.190 --> 00:13:02.260
  • - AS YOU CAN SEE FROM OUR STORIES, POVERTY IN
  • 00:13:03.250 --> 00:13:06.150
  • AMERICA HIT PEOPLE IN ALL OF OUR COMMUNITIES.
  • 00:13:06.170 --> 00:13:10.160
  • ONE IN EIGHT AMERICANS ARE FOOD INSECURE.
  • 00:13:10.180 --> 00:13:13.030
  • MANY PEOPLE IN NEED ARE JUST LIKE YOU AND ME.
  • 00:13:13.050 --> 00:13:16.080
  • - WHETHER YOU LOOK AROUND YOUR CHURCH
  • 00:13:16.100 --> 00:13:18.120
  • CONGREGATION, YOUR SCHOOL CLASSROOM, YOUR
  • 00:13:18.140 --> 00:13:20.110
  • NEIGHBORHOOD, ONE OUT OF EIGHT PEOPLE ON AVERAGE
  • 00:13:20.130 --> 00:13:23.180
  • ISN'T SURE THEY'RE GONNA BE ABLE TO FEED
  • 00:13:23.200 --> 00:13:25.000
  • THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILY TONIGHT OR TOMORROW.
  • 00:13:25.020 --> 00:13:27.100
  • THAT'S REALLY STARTLING.
  • 00:13:27.120 --> 00:13:29.010
  • - POVERTY IS PART OF THE FOOD INSECURE CHALLENGE,
  • 00:13:29.030 --> 00:13:32.110
  • BUT THE ISSUE IS MORE COMPLEX THAN YOU MAY THINK.
  • 00:13:32.130 --> 00:13:35.190
  • - POVERTY AND FOOD INSECURITY ARE RELATED
  • 00:13:35.210 --> 00:13:37.190
  • BUT THEY'RE DIFFERENT.
  • 00:13:37.210 --> 00:13:38.260
  • POVERTY IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST CONTRIBUTING
  • 00:13:38.280 --> 00:13:40.120
  • FACTORS TO FOOD INSECURITY BUT SO IS UNEMPLOYMENT.
  • 00:13:40.140 --> 00:13:42.290
  • - POVERTY IS PRESENT ALL AROUND.
  • 00:13:43.010 --> 00:13:45.180
  • FOOD INSECURITY, YOU'LL FIND FAMILIES THAT ARE
  • 00:13:45.200 --> 00:13:48.160
  • WORKING BUT ARE UNABLE TO MAKE ENDS MEET.
  • 00:13:48.180 --> 00:13:51.120
  • FIFTY FIVE PERCENT OF THE 30.000 INDIVIDUALS THAT WE
  • 00:13:51.140 --> 00:13:54.170
  • SERVE ARE WORKING POOR.
  • 00:13:54.190 --> 00:13:56.190
  • - WE'VE GOT TO THINK ABOUT THE PRACTICAL
  • 00:13:56.210 --> 00:13:59.010
  • MEASURE OF THE POVERTY LINE WOULD BE FOR A
  • 00:13:59.030 --> 00:14:00.260
  • FAMILY OF FOUR WOULD MAKE ABOUT $32.000 DOLLARS A
  • 00:14:00.280 --> 00:14:03.140
  • YEAR, AND I THINK IT WOULD SURPRISE PEOPLE TO
  • 00:14:03.160 --> 00:14:05.100
  • KNOW THAT MORE THAN HALF OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:14:05.120 --> 00:14:07.040
  • FOOD INSECURE IN THIS COUNTRY MAKE MORE THAN
  • 00:14:07.060 --> 00:14:09.110
  • $32.000 DOLLARS IF THEY'RE A FAMILY OF FOUR,
  • 00:14:09.130 --> 00:14:11.210
  • SO LIVE ABOVE THE POVERTY LINE.
  • 00:14:11.230 --> 00:14:13.250
  • - AFTER THE GREAT RECESSION, UNEMPLOYMENT
  • 00:14:13.270 --> 00:14:15.270
  • IS DOWN, PEOPLE ARE WORKING, BUT HAVING
  • 00:14:15.290 --> 00:14:18.180
  • ENOUGH MONEY FOR FOOD IS STILL A CHALLENGE FOR MANY.
  • 00:14:18.200 --> 00:14:22.090
  • - RIGHT NOW WE'RE AT FULL EMPLOYMENT ECONOMY,
  • 00:14:22.110 --> 00:14:24.200
  • WITH LESS THAN FOUR PERCENT OFFICIAL UNEMPLOYMENT
  • 00:14:24.220 --> 00:14:27.240
  • RATE, BUT SO MANY PEOPLE ARE UNDER-EMPLOYED.
  • 00:14:27.260 --> 00:14:30.160
  • - IT IS ESTIMATED ONE IN FIVE AMERICAN LATINOS
  • 00:14:30.180 --> 00:14:33.290
  • IS FOOD INSECURE. FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS,
  • 00:14:34.010 --> 00:14:37.000
  • THE NUMBERS INCREASE TO ONE IN FOUR.
  • 00:14:37.020 --> 00:14:39.080
  • - PEOPLE ARE WORKING AND THEY'RE NOT GETTING PAID
  • 00:14:39.100 --> 00:14:40.240
  • ENOUGH TO SUSTAIN THEIR FAMILY.
  • 00:14:40.260 --> 00:14:42.150
  • WE CAN'T AFFORD TO FEED EVERYBODY.
  • 00:14:42.170 --> 00:14:45.010
  • WE'RE NOT LAZY OR WE DON'T HAVE JOBS. IT'S THAT EVERYTHING
  • 00:14:45.030 --> 00:14:48.000
  • IS TOO EXPENSIVE AND OUR WORKS DON'T PAY US
  • 00:14:48.020 --> 00:14:51.120
  • ENOUGH TO GET WHATEVER WE NEED AND BE HEALTHY.
  • 00:14:51.140 --> 00:14:54.130
  • - FIFTY ONE PERCENT OF THOSE WE SERVE ARE
  • 00:14:54.150 --> 00:14:56.130
  • CHILDREN. APPROXIMATELY 18 PERCENT ARE SENIORS.
  • 00:14:56.150 --> 00:15:02.060
  • - AMERILY ORTEGA, AS WELL AS HER AUNT AND
  • 00:15:02.080 --> 00:15:04.280
  • COUSINS, ARE A TYPICAL LATINO AMERICAN FAMILY
  • 00:15:05.000 --> 00:15:07.070
  • FACING HUNGER TODAY.
  • 00:15:07.090 --> 00:15:09.190
  • IN ORDER TO GET FRESH PRODUCE AND GROCERIES
  • 00:15:09.210 --> 00:15:12.030
  • FOR FREE, THEY WALK 30 MINUTES EACH WAY
  • 00:15:12.050 --> 00:15:14.260
  • TO THIS SUPER PANTRY.
  • 00:15:14.280 --> 00:15:17.040
  • - I WENT TO THE SUPER PANTRY BECAUSE I THOUGHT
  • 00:15:17.060 --> 00:15:18.190
  • IT WAS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO GET FOOD,
  • 00:15:18.210 --> 00:15:20.180
  • AND THEY HAVE A LOT OF GOOD STUFF LIKE PROTEINS
  • 00:15:20.200 --> 00:15:23.020
  • AND BREAD, ORGANIC STUFF.
  • 00:15:23.040 --> 00:15:26.020
  • - ANNUALLY WE SERVE 306.000 INDIVIDUALS.
  • 00:15:26.040 --> 00:15:30.200
  • WE ARE AVERAGING 30.000 INDIVIDUALS PER MONTH.
  • 00:15:30.220 --> 00:15:33.280
  • ON A DAILY BASIS, WE PROVIDE 1.000 MEALS.
  • 00:15:34.000 --> 00:15:37.170
  • WE HAVE THE ACCESS OF FRESH FRUITS AND
  • 00:15:37.190 --> 00:15:40.070
  • VEGETABLE, VERY LITTLE SUGAR, THEY HAVE WHOLE
  • 00:15:40.090 --> 00:15:43.000
  • GRAIN THAT THEY ACCESS.
  • 00:15:43.020 --> 00:15:45.120
  • WE HAVE LOW-FAT MILK AND BREAD AND LEAN MEAT.
  • 00:15:45.140 --> 00:15:50.110
  • - PRODUCE IS A LUXURY AT THE GROCERY STORE.
  • 00:15:50.130 --> 00:15:52.280
  • IT'S A LUXURY NOT EVERYBODY CAN HAVE.
  • 00:15:53.000 --> 00:15:55.050
  • - AN EXTENSION TO THE SUPER PANTRY IS THIS INNER CITY
  • 00:15:55.070 --> 00:15:58.080
  • FARM THAT PROVIDES THE PANTRY WITH FRESH PRODUCE.
  • 00:15:58.100 --> 00:16:01.190

  • LATINO AMERICANS IS A VERY REAL PROBLEM.
  • 00:17:16.210 --> 00:17:19.280

  • TO THE COMMUNITY.
  • 00:17:50.040 --> 00:17:53.290
  • - AMERICA'S FOOD BANKS ARE FUNDED BY
  • 00:17:56.040 --> 00:17:57.240
  • CORPORATIONS, PRIVATE DONATIONS AND BY NON-PROFIT
  • 00:17:57.260 --> 00:18:01.140
  • ORGANIZATIONS COMMITTED TO DOING GOOD WORK IN THE
  • 00:18:01.160 --> 00:18:04.030
  • COMMUNITIES THEY SERVE.
  • 00:18:04.050 --> 00:18:06.280
  • FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS NOW, ONE NON-PROFIT,
  • 00:18:07.000 --> 00:18:10.180
  • TASTE OF THE NFL, HAS RAISED OVER 27 MILLION
  • 00:18:10.200 --> 00:18:14.160
  • DOLLARS WHICH HAS CREATED MORE THAN 220 MILLION NEW
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:18.160
  • MEALS AT LOCAL FOOD BANKS.
  • 00:18:18.180 --> 00:18:21.280
  • IT'S CALLED KICK HUNGER CHALLENGE AND ALLOWS US
  • 00:18:22.000 --> 00:18:25.090
  • FOOTBALL FANS LIKE YOU AND ME TO MAKE A DONATION TO

  • SO IF YOU DONATE $10, YOU'RE POTENTIALLY
  • 00:18:39.220 --> 00:18:41.260
  • CREATING 80 NEW MEALS.
  • 00:18:41.280 --> 00:18:45.220
  • - I HAVE NOTICED WHEN SENIORS' BACKS ARE
  • 00:18:45.240 --> 00:18:47.290
  • AGAINST THE WALL, IT'S A NO-BRAINER.
  • 00:18:48.010 --> 00:18:50.020
  • SENIORS CHOOSE TO PAY THEIR RENT OR TAKE CARE
  • 00:18:50.040 --> 00:18:53.180
  • OF THEIR UTILITY BILLS, MEDICAL BILLS BEFORE
  • 00:18:53.200 --> 00:18:56.000
  • GETTING ANY KIND OF NUTRITION INTO THEIR BODIES.
  • 00:18:56.020 --> 00:18:59.270
  • SO WE FIND THAT A LOT OF SENIORS THAT ARE IN OUR
  • 00:18:59.290 --> 00:19:03.010
  • COMMUNITY ARE ACTUALLY MALNUTRITIONED.
  • 00:19:03.030 --> 00:19:05.270
  • - IN THIS PART OF TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS, FOOD
  • 00:19:05.290 --> 00:19:08.100
  • INSECURITY AND POVERTY, WE TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT
  • 00:19:08.120 --> 00:19:11.100
  • THE SENIOR CITIZEN POPULATION OF AMERICA.
  • 00:19:11.120 --> 00:19:14.280
  • THIS DEMOGRAPHIC IS SURPRISINGLY AFFECTED BY HUNGER.
  • 00:19:15.000 --> 00:19:18.240
  • 5 MILLION SENIOR CITIZENS AGED 60 OR OLDER
  • 00:19:18.260 --> 00:19:21.270
  • FACE FOOD INSECURITY.
  • 00:19:21.290 --> 00:19:23.260
  • IN THE NEXT TWO DECADES, AS THE YOUNGEST OF THE
  • 00:19:23.280 --> 00:19:26.200
  • BABY BOOMER GENERATION REACHES 65, THAT NUMBER
  • 00:19:26.220 --> 00:19:30.210
  • IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE BY 50%.
  • 00:19:30.230 --> 00:19:34.070
  • - MANY SENIORS ARE LIVING ON FIXED INCOMES
  • 00:19:34.090 --> 00:19:36.250
  • AND TRYING TO STRETCH VERY LIMITED BUDGETS.
  • 00:19:36.270 --> 00:19:38.250
  • AND OF COURSE AS THE COST OF LIVING INCREASES, THAT
  • 00:19:38.270 --> 00:19:41.080
  • GETS INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT.
  • 00:19:41.100 --> 00:19:43.110
  • I THINK IT WOULD SURPRISE PEOPLE TO KNOW THAT
  • 00:19:43.130 --> 00:19:45.170
  • SENIORS WHO ARE A LITTLE YOUNGER IN YEARS IN THE
  • 00:19:45.190 --> 00:19:47.240
  • AGE RANGE OF 60-69 TEND TO BE AT HIGHER RISK FOR
  • 00:19:47.260 --> 00:19:51.110
  • HUNGER AND FOOD INSECURITY, AND THAT'S IN
  • 00:19:51.130 --> 00:19:53.240
  • PART BECAUSE MANY OF THEIR RETIREMENT BENEFITS
  • 00:19:53.260 --> 00:19:56.130
  • HAVEN'T KICKED IN YET.
  • 00:19:56.150 --> 00:19:58.110
  • AND YET THEIR INCOME HAS DROPPED TO A MUCH, MUCH
  • 00:19:58.130 --> 00:20:00.060
  • LOWER LEVEL, AND THEIR EXPENSES HAVEN'T COME
  • 00:20:00.080 --> 00:20:02.060
  • DOWN ACCORDINGLY, SO MANY OF THEM ARE FACING HUNGER
  • 00:20:02.080 --> 00:20:05.080
  • AND FOOD INSECURITY AT HIGHER RATES EVEN THAN
  • 00:20:05.100 --> 00:20:08.120
  • SENIORS WHO ARE OLDER IN YEARS.
  • 00:20:08.140 --> 00:20:10.140
  • - IT'S HARD TO MAKE ENDS MEET WHEN YOU'RE LIVING
  • 00:20:10.160 --> 00:20:12.200
  • ON A FIXED INCOME, AND SO MANY OF OUR NEIGHBORS WHO
  • 00:20:12.220 --> 00:20:15.010
  • ARE TRYING TO AGE WITH DIGNITY ARE FINDING
  • 00:20:15.030 --> 00:20:17.120
  • THEMSELVES NOT ABLE TO DO THAT.
  • 00:20:17.140 --> 00:20:19.220
  • - THE SENIORS NOWADAYS NEED FOOD AND HEALTHY FOOD.
  • 00:20:19.240 --> 00:20:24.130
  • - MANY SENIORS FACING HUNGER LIVING IN
  • 00:20:24.150 --> 00:20:26.290
  • COMMUNITIES THAT ARE CONSIDERED FOOD DESERTS
  • 00:20:27.010 --> 00:20:29.240
  • WHERE IT IS DIFFICULT GETTING TO FOOD IN THEIR
  • 00:20:29.260 --> 00:20:32.060
  • NEIGHBORHOODS.
  • 00:20:32.080 --> 00:20:34.050
  • - FOOD DESERT MEANS THAT THERE IS NOT A GROCERY
  • 00:20:34.070 --> 00:20:37.000
  • STORE OR A MARKET OR A PLACE WHERE FOLKS CAN
  • 00:20:37.020 --> 00:20:39.180
  • ACCESS NUTRITIONAL FOOD WITHIN A CERTAIN DISTANCE
  • 00:20:39.200 --> 00:20:44.110
  • TO THEIR HOME.
  • 00:20:44.130 --> 00:20:45.250
  • - WE JUST HAD A GROCERY STORE CLOSE, SO IT'S HARD
  • 00:20:45.270 --> 00:20:47.160
  • TO GET TO THE GROCERY STORE UNLESS YOU CATCH
  • 00:20:47.180 --> 00:20:48.260
  • THE BUS.
  • 00:20:48.280 --> 00:20:50.140
  • - SO WE KNOW SO MANY OF OUR SENIORS DON'T HAVE
  • 00:20:50.160 --> 00:20:51.280
  • TRANSPORTATION.
  • 00:20:52.000 --> 00:20:53.130
  • THEY MAY NOT HAVE FAMILY NEARBY THAT CAN DRIVE
  • 00:20:53.150 --> 00:20:54.270
  • THEM TWO, THREE, FOUR MILES TO A GROCERY STORE,
  • 00:20:54.290 --> 00:20:57.220
  • AND THEY CERTAINLY CAN'T WALK THAT FAR ESPECIALLY
  • 00:20:57.240 --> 00:20:59.280
  • IN HEAT OR INCLEMENT WEALTH.
  • 00:21:00.020 --> 00:21:02.170
  • - MOST GROCERY STORES MAY BE I'LL SAY HALF A
  • 00:21:02.190 --> 00:21:05.050
  • MILE AWAY, AND A NUMBER OF OUR SENIORS IN THE
  • 00:21:05.070 --> 00:21:07.040
  • BUILDING DOES NOT HAVE TRANSPORTATION.
  • 00:21:07.060 --> 00:21:09.210
  • YOU SEE A NUMBER OF THEM WALKING WITH WALKERS.
  • 00:21:09.230 --> 00:21:11.280
  • THEY CAN'T WALK WITH A WALKER AND CARRY
  • 00:21:12.000 --> 00:21:13.090
  • THEIR GROCERIES.
  • 00:21:13.110 --> 00:21:15.280
  • - GETTING NUTRITIOUS FOOD TO WHERE THE SENIORS
  • 00:21:16.000 --> 00:21:18.050
  • LIVE HELPS FIX THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:21:18.070 --> 00:21:20.250
  • - WE HAVE A NUMBER OF PROGRAMS THAT TRY TO
  • 00:21:20.270 --> 00:21:23.010
  • PROVIDE HEALTHY FOOD TO SENIOR CENTERS.
  • 00:21:23.030 --> 00:21:25.060
  • - IT'S KNOWN AS THE SENIOR BOX.
  • 00:21:25.080 --> 00:21:26.270
  • EVERY MONTH, WE DISTRIBUTE, IT'S ABOUT A
  • 00:21:26.290 --> 00:21:29.260
  • 30 POUND BOX OF SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION TO
  • 00:21:29.280 --> 00:21:31.290
  • OUR SENIORS IN THE COMMUNITY.
  • 00:21:32.010 --> 00:21:33.290
  • AND SO THEY'LL COME, AND THEY'LL RECEIVE THEIR BOX.
  • 00:21:34.010 --> 00:21:36.030
  • THEY'LL GET WHAT THEY NEED TO HELP GET
  • 00:21:36.050 --> 00:21:38.140
  • THROUGH THE MONTH.
  • 00:21:38.160 --> 00:21:40.010
  • - THE BOX I GOT TODAY, IT WAS GOOD.
  • 00:21:40.030 --> 00:21:42.060
  • IT HAD MILK IN IT, JUICE, CANNED CHICKEN, BEANS,
  • 00:21:42.080 --> 00:21:46.070
  • RICE, THE CHEESE IS GOOD.
  • 00:21:46.090 --> 00:21:50.010
  • OH, I LOVE THE CHEESE FOR A GOOD CHEESE SANDWICH
  • 00:21:50.030 --> 00:21:51.170
  • AND MACARONI AND CHEESE AND LASAGNA.
  • 00:21:51.190 --> 00:21:52.240
  • IT HELPS OUT.
  • 00:21:52.260 --> 00:21:54.170
  • IT'S VERY NUTRITIONAL, IT'S HEALTHY FOOD.
  • 00:21:54.190 --> 00:21:57.020
  • - THEY SUPPLEMENT THE FOOD WITH LIKE THE GREEN
  • 00:21:57.040 --> 00:21:59.240
  • BEANS AND THE CORN AND THE MILK, PEACHES AND
  • 00:21:59.260 --> 00:22:04.280
  • STUFF LIKE THAT.
  • 00:22:05.000 --> 00:22:06.120
  • THAT HELPS SUPPLEMENT PART OF THEIR FOOD, MAKE
  • 00:22:06.140 --> 00:22:07.240
  • A BALANCED MEAL.
  • 00:22:07.260 --> 00:22:09.190
  • - I USE EVERYTHING THAT COMES IN THE BOX.
  • 00:22:09.210 --> 00:22:11.080
  • IT DOESN'T GO TO WASTE.
  • 00:22:11.100 --> 00:22:12.250
  • IT HELPS ME OUT TOWARD THE END OF THE MONTH
  • 00:22:12.270 --> 00:22:14.110
  • BASICALLY THAT'S WHEN STUFF GETS LOW AT THE
  • 00:22:14.130 --> 00:22:15.240
  • END OF THE MONTH.
  • 00:22:15.260 --> 00:22:17.150
  • - GETTING THROUGH TO THE END OF THE MONTH IS A
  • 00:22:17.170 --> 00:22:19.090
  • REAL LIFE CHALLENGE FOR MANY SENIOR AMERICANS.
  • 00:22:19.110 --> 00:22:21.280
  • THE GREAT RECESSION IS STILL AFFECTING
  • 00:22:22.000 --> 00:22:24.140
  • THEIR DAILY BUDGET.
  • 00:22:24.160 --> 00:22:26.070
  • - ONE OF THE CHALLENGES IN COMING OUT OF THE
  • 00:22:26.090 --> 00:22:29.010
  • GREAT RECESSION IS IF THEY HAD PUT MONEY ASIDE,
  • 00:22:29.030 --> 00:22:32.110
  • THEY DON'T HAVE AS MUCH TIME TO RECOVER FROM
  • 00:22:32.130 --> 00:22:34.120
  • THOSE LOSSES IN THEIR INVESTMENTS OR IN THEIR SAVINGS.
  • 00:22:34.140 --> 00:22:38.230
  • SO SUDDENLY, THEY MAY FIND THEMSELVES LIVING WITH
  • 00:22:38.250 --> 00:22:41.060
  • VERY LIMITED MEANS AND NOT AS MUCH TIME FOR
  • 00:22:41.080 --> 00:22:45.100
  • THOSE SAVINGS AND INVESTMENTS TO GROW.
  • 00:22:45.120 --> 00:22:47.280
  • - THESE ARE FOLKS WHO ARE STILL CARING FOR
  • 00:22:48.000 --> 00:22:50.020
  • THEIR KIDS AND THEIR GRAND KIDS, MAYBE EVEN
  • 00:22:50.040 --> 00:22:51.270
  • THEIR GREAT GRAND KIDS, AND STRUGGLING WITH SOME
  • 00:22:51.290 --> 00:22:54.210
  • FINANCIAL ISSUES FROM THE PAST THAT THEY'RE JUST
  • 00:22:54.230 --> 00:22:56.190
  • TRYING TO OVERCOME.
  • 00:22:56.210 --> 00:22:58.140
  • - ACTIVE SENIORS LIKE SHARINE JACKSON WHO
  • 00:22:58.160 --> 00:23:00.120
  • HELP CARE FOR THEIR OWN KIDS, GRAND KIDS AND
  • 00:23:00.140 --> 00:23:03.190
  • ELDERLY PARENTS, AS WELL AS THEMSELVES.
  • 00:23:03.210 --> 00:23:07.180
  • - I HAVE SIX KIDS, FOUR BOYS AND TWO GIRLS.
  • 00:23:07.200 --> 00:23:10.230
  • I HAVE 18 GRAND KIDS, AND MOSTLY I JUST TAKE
  • 00:23:10.250 --> 00:23:14.040
  • CARE OF MY DAD.
  • 00:23:14.060 --> 00:23:16.020
  • MY DAD IS 82 YEARS OLD. I CUT HIS GRASS.
  • 00:23:16.040 --> 00:23:18.160
  • I WASH CLOTHES FOR HIM.
  • 00:23:18.180 --> 00:23:19.250
  • I COOK FOR HIM SOMETIMES.
  • 00:23:19.270 --> 00:23:21.140
  • I GO TO THE LAUNDROMAT.
  • 00:23:21.160 --> 00:23:23.050
  • I SHOVEL SNOW, WHATEVER HE NEEDS ME TO DO.
  • 00:23:23.070 --> 00:23:25.000
  • BASICALLY, I JUST LIKE TO HELP PEOPLE.
  • 00:23:25.020 --> 00:23:27.020
  • - THE SENIORS OF TODAY ARE FACED WITH THE
  • 00:23:27.040 --> 00:23:28.280
  • RISING COST OF MEDICINE AND HEALTHCARE.
  • 00:23:29.000 --> 00:23:31.110
  • WHEN MONEY IS TIGHT, THEY'RE FACED WITH THE
  • 00:23:31.130 --> 00:23:34.030
  • REALITY OF BUYING FOOD OR MEDICINE.
  • 00:23:34.050 --> 00:23:37.050
  • - THEY WILL SPEND MONEY ON THEIR MEDICINE
  • 00:23:37.070 --> 00:23:39.030
  • BEFORE THEY'LL GET FOOD BECAUSE THE MEDICINE IS
  • 00:23:39.050 --> 00:23:40.260
  • THE MOST IMPORTANT BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T TAKE
  • 00:23:40.280 --> 00:23:42.150
  • THE MEDICINE, THEN THEY'D REALLY BE SICK,
  • 00:23:42.170 --> 00:23:44.000
  • AND THEN THE FOOD COMES LATER.
  • 00:23:44.020 --> 00:23:45.180
  • - WE FIND THAT THEY'RE UNABLE TO MAKE ENDS MEET,
  • 00:23:45.200 --> 00:23:49.010
  • AND WITH THE COST OF HEALTH INSURANCE, THEIR
  • 00:23:49.030 --> 00:23:52.180
  • COPAY, WE FIND THAT SENIORS GO HUNGRY.
  • 00:23:52.200 --> 00:23:56.230
  • - AS SENIORS GET OLDER, THEY'RE FACED WITH A
  • 00:23:56.250 --> 00:23:58.190
  • NUMBER OF CHRONIC ILLNESSES.
  • 00:23:58.210 --> 00:24:00.140
  • IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE PROPER NUTRITION TO HELP
  • 00:24:00.160 --> 00:24:02.110
  • YOUR MEDICINE DIGEST AND WORK PROPERLY,
  • 00:24:02.130 --> 00:24:04.230
  • THEN IT JUST COMPOUNDS THE ISSUE.
  • 00:24:04.250 --> 00:24:06.260
  • AND TOO OFTEN WE EVEN FIND THAT FOLKS ARE
  • 00:24:06.280 --> 00:24:09.010
  • CHOOSING TO PAY FOR MEDICINE INSTEAD OF FOOD,
  • 00:24:09.030 --> 00:24:11.250
  • OR THEY HAVE TO MAKE THOSE DECISIONS OF WHAT'S
  • 00:24:11.270 --> 00:24:13.210
  • MORE IMPORTANT?
  • 00:24:13.230 --> 00:24:15.080
  • THEIR PRESCRIPTION OR THEIR GROCERY BILL?
  • 00:24:15.100 --> 00:24:16.290
  • - AND FOOD INSECURE SENIORS ARE MORE AT RISK
  • 00:24:17.010 --> 00:24:19.040
  • FOR CHRONIC HEALTH CONDITIONS.
  • 00:24:19.060 --> 00:24:22.020
  • SO KEEPING SENIORS ON A HEALTHY NUTRITIONAL
  • 00:24:33.120 --> 00:24:35.070
  • DIET IS PARAMOUNT.
  • 00:24:35.090 --> 00:24:37.230
  • - THE NUTRITION IS VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT
  • 00:24:37.250 --> 00:24:39.180
  • MAKES THEM FEEL BETTER.
  • 00:24:39.200 --> 00:24:41.070
  • - GOOD NUTRITION IS SO ESSENTIAL TO QUALITY OF
  • 00:24:41.090 --> 00:24:43.150
  • LIFE AND RETIREMENT IN LATER YEARS, HAVING
  • 00:24:43.170 --> 00:24:46.230
  • RELIABLE, ADEQUATE ACCESS TO HEALTHY FOOD
  • 00:24:46.250 --> 00:24:48.220
  • IS SO IMPORTANT.
  • 00:24:48.240 --> 00:24:50.280
  • AND SENIORS WHO ARE LIVING ON A FIXED INCOME
  • 00:24:51.000 --> 00:24:52.260
  • FIND THAT MORE DIFFICULT, AND THAT'S SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:24:52.280 --> 00:24:54.270
  • OFTEN GETS COMPROMISED.
  • 00:24:54.290 --> 00:24:56.180
  • - AS AMERICANS, KEEPING AN EYE OUT FOR SENIORS.
  • 00:24:56.200 --> 00:24:58.290
  • WHO MAY BE FOOD INSECURE IS PART OF TAKING
  • 00:24:59.010 --> 00:25:01.070
  • CARE OF BUSINESS.
  • 00:25:01.090 --> 00:25:04.250
  • - SENIOR HUNGER IS ESPECIALLY PREVALENT
  • 00:25:04.270 --> 00:25:06.060
  • FOR ELDERLY.
  • 00:25:06.080 --> 00:25:07.260
  • WOMEN, FEMALES, THOSE WHO ARE DIVORCED OR SEPARATED

  • AMERICAN SENIORS, AS WELL AS THOSE WHO ARE DEALING
  • 00:25:14.100 --> 00:25:17.000
  • WITH SOME SORT OF A DISABILITY.
  • 00:25:17.020 --> 00:25:19.210
  • IT CAN BE HARD TO SPOT, BUT IF YOU HAVE A
  • 00:25:19.230 --> 00:25:21.210
  • NEIGHBOR WHO YOU SEE A VERY SIGNIFICANT CHANGE
  • 00:25:21.230 --> 00:25:24.220
  • IN THEIR MOOD OR IN THEIR BEHAVIOR, OR IF THEY
  • 00:25:24.240 --> 00:25:27.000
  • CONSISTENT SAY, "OH, I ALREADY ATE," AND/OR YOU
  • 00:25:27.020 --> 00:25:29.140
  • DIRECTLY OBSERVE THAT THEY HAVE VERY LITTLE
  • 00:25:29.160 --> 00:25:33.060

  • IT CAN AFFECT PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE.

  • ADULTS WHO DO NOT GET THE MEALS THEY NEED.

  • FOR MORE THAN 35 YEARS, FEEDING AMERICA HAS
  • 00:26:37.060 --> 00:26:40.160
  • RESPONDED TO THE HUNGER CRISIS IN AMERICA BY
  • 00:26:40.180 --> 00:26:43.060
  • PROVIDING FOOD TO PEOPLE IN NEED THROUGH A

  • IT'S VERY REAL HERE IN AMERICA, BUT I INVITE YOU
