“Give Cash, Not Food”
Ester Bloom

I work in the anti-hunger field, so it’s really exciting to me to see this discussed in pop culture. But I would also take his message one step further: the charitable sector is not going to end hunger, period. We must advocate to address the root causes of hunger and build a strong government safety net. Food distribution is set up to address emergency or temporary hunger needs; at most, it is a band-aid. The fact that people have to rely on it long-term speaks to a failure of our government to meet citizens’ basic needs.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
