Feeding the Poor
It's great that Feeding America of Eastern Wisconsin recently got a refrigerated truck to deliver fresh food to the hungry.
The truck will pick up and deliver fresh meat, dairy and produce. That acquisition was featured one of our "Positively Milwaukee" news stories today.
It reminds me of a letter I got from a viewer recently. He lamented the fact that he was having a hard time getting healthy food at local food banks. He mentioned that he was diabetic, and really wanted to eat healthy. But he often finds the offerings are high fat, high calorie, and unhealthy..
Hopefully, this new refrigerated truck will make it easier to offer nutritional choices to the poor. Many of those in need of such services have chronic health issues, and need special dietary concerns.
While it's impossible to solve every need, options for proper nourishment should be available. After all, the poor deserve a chance at healthy eating just like everyone else.
