“I’ve seen a shocking amount of food insecurity in the local college student population, so when I learned that one in six of our county residents is food insecure, I could put faces on those numbers. In a community with so much abundance, everyone should have access to nutritious food. I am honored to be part of a team that is working toward that goal.”
