In my house a frequent debate happens over the common question thrown out to my family: “What does everyone want for dinner?”
While an innocent enough question, the reality is the question doesn’t even come up for many in Charlotte. In the state of North Carolina, 1,764,800 people are food insecure. Even more staggering, North Carolina has one the highest percentages in the United States of children under 18 years of age who are food insecure on a regular basis. Almost 1 in 4 (24.6 percent) children in our state do not know where their next meal is coming from.
