A Family Faces Food Insecurity in America’s HeartlandKatherine A. Thichava
In the land of plenty, itâ€™s hard to believe that anyone would struggle to put food on their table, but thatâ€™s the reality for many in the United States. The Dreier family is one such family. Theyâ€™ve had to cobble together decent meals with help from WIC, food stamps, and local food pantries.
Although the family works, itâ€™s not enough to ensure the bills are paid and everyoneâ€™s belly is full. Unfortunately, the Dreierâ€™s story is becoming increasingly common in America.
