    Thanks for the reality check, notice how the number of people increase as the food supply decreases!

    I keep coming back to this and studying it. And I notice how the cost decreases as the amount of processed and packaged food decreases. And I wonder, if more of us started eliminating the over-processed ‘extras’, what financial resources would that free up to support a hunger organization? I know hunger is so much more complex, just pondering. I always say there’s no wiggle room in my budget, but what if I tried, really tried to reduce my grocery costs? And what if I kept my food budget the same and considered the excess ‘feed someone else’ money?

    Just thinking out loud.
