FOOD INSECURITY

A society as wealthy as ours should not know hunger. It is a moral offense that so many continue to face food insecurity, especially children. Bringing affordable grocers into our neighborhoods and expanding school meal programs improves health and nutrition in the short term, and in the long term reduces chronic illnesses and even crime. 

  • Create and invest in urban farming opportunities such as hydroponic allowing residents to learn and grow their own food 

  • Support food pantries and community fridges  

  • develop more grocery stores and supermarkets in food deserts. 

  • Pass legislation that allows businesses to donate food to reduce food waste without penalty.
