Portraits of Hunger

People often who our clients are-and the answer is that they’re your neighbor, your friends, your family. The National Public Radio program “All Things Considered” recently covered an exhibit about hunger in the United States by photographer Michael Nye.

Particularly moving was the story of Kathy, who is homeless and has children. “How do you explain to a 2-year-old or 4-year-old there’s nothing to eat?” she said. “All they know is that they’re hungry. And the pain in their stomach. And you try to sit there and say, ‘Honey, I’m sorry. I don’t have anything to cook you. I don’t have nothing to give you. I have nothing.'”

Although the individuals who were interviewed come from all over, they have many of the same concerns as people in Santa Cruz County. The 8-minute audio clip and the slide show are very moving-you should check them out.
