The gift from Bank of America for the food banks is very timely (“Bank of America gives $200,000 to FISH Food Banks,” TW, Nov. 15.) The food banks are being called on more than ever. There were one in five children having “food insecurity” even before the Nov. 1 cut back in the food stamps program due to the stimulus monies expiring. Now even more cuts are on the horizon with the proposals in the new Farm Bill. But what are the underlying causes? Poor wages, no jobs, just to name a few. Citizens, time to contact your legislators and ask them to do something about this. But while they are answering the causes question, tell your elected officials to feed the hungry!
