Food Shouldn't Be an Impossible Choice
Last night, my family was choosing what to have for dinner. We talked through endless options. We could make pasta, but we couldn’t decide between brands of sauces we had. We could eat out, but we couldn’t decide where we all would enjoy. We ended up raiding the pantry for what each of u wanted and made four separate items to meet our individual tastes. This happens more often than I’d like to admit. The point is, though, that we had choices. Lots and lots of great choices.
For 1 in 4 people in Central California, a daily meal is a choice between food and other critical needs – like medicine, utilities, or childcare. There is no luxury of what to eat. The choice is IF they eat.
