Mapping the meal gap
25 August 2011 Poverty
This was almost demoralizing to look at, but the truth must be grasped if we’re going to do something proper about it.
We’re in Kern County, and the impoverished is quite high. Pretty striking. Likely that has to do with the high number of day laborers around due to the farming.
The poor are people, too.
