Random quotes: “The sooner you believe it, the sooner we can end it” “The agriculture department estimated in 1999 that twelve million children were hungry or at risk of going hungry.” “In 2000 requests for food assistance from families increased almost 20 percent” “Of all the humiliations attached to being poor in a prosperous nation, not being able to t feed your kids is at the top of the list” “A food bank in in Connecticut gave away four thousand more turkeys than the year before- and still ran out of birds.”
Poverty is a main cause because people living in poverty cannot afford nutritious food for themselves and their families. This makes them weak, unstable, and less able to earn the money that would help them escape poverty and hunger to feed their families. This is not just a day to day problem; when children are chronically malnourished, or “hungered”, it can affect their future income in their daily lives, and then condemning them to a life of poverty and hunger for a long time. Lack of agriculture plays a major role because many developing countries lack agriculture investment causing downfall in their economies, such as enough roads, warehouses and irrigation. The results are high transport costs, lack of storage facilities and unreliable water supplies.
However the recent riots that even destroyed some of the convenience stores on which many rely.) Directional transition: Now you know the how the hunger can damage our society, next I want to discuss to a volunteer of food finder food bank can really make difference in our community. II. Joining Food Finder Food Bank can really make difference to directly help people. (Until now FoodFinder is already distributed more than seven million pounds of food through the 16 counties.)
In the newspaper article, “No Lunch Left Behind,” by Alice Waters and Katrina Heron, the authors inform the audience, “But food distributed by the National School Lunch Program contains some of the same ingredients found in fast food and the resulting meals routinely fail to meet basic nutritional standards. Yet this is how the government continues to ‘help’ feed millions of American schoolchildren, a great many of them from low-income households”(4). Waters and Heron argue school programs provide unhealthy food on a daily basis, which accustom the students to not having a choice, yet to eat it and not starve. Students may not realize that the food being served is technically as bad as going to a junk food restaurant. The fast food industry is constantly improving everything to get people to come back and order the “new,” that will benefit them in many ways.
The importance of this issue is significant because all the food being wasted daily totals about 4 million dollars in the U.S. The Durango Herald says honestly “Not surprisingly, American kids, whether pressed for time or just grossed out, leave much of their meals untouched; particularly neglected are the fruits and vegetables, which they are now forced to put on their trays before they can exit the cafeteria line.” This tremendous waste can be stopped but only if we abolish the Healthy Hunger Free Kids
The second cause for poverty is the lack of sufficient food and food costs. Hunger has become a common feeling for families living in poverty. Food is a necessity and something that we can not avoid paying for. Even as much as “66 percent of households… have to choose between paying for medical care and food every year,” says feedingamerica.org. The fact that citizens have to choose between their own health and having enough food to eat really exposes that much of America is living in poverty.
Everyday a young child is starving because his or her parents cannot afford to feed him/her. In the Feed the Children commercials, they stare disconsolate showing how uncomfortable and unhappy they are. Knowing how some people starve and are not as fortunate still does not have a big affect on some people. People often spend on extra things that they do not even need. This excess spending on food is putting their health at risk causing obesity.
Banks greed and guilt is what started this it drove lots of families to get up and leave to find work. In the book John Steinbeck states, "And now they were weary and frightened because they had gone against a system they did not understand and it had beaten them. They knew the team and the wagon were worth much more. They knew the buyer man would get much more, but they didn't know how to do it. Merchandizing was a secret to them"(Steinbeck,pg.97).
Later on in Saddam Hussein’s rule, after the financial problems many people did not have access to education because it was too expensive. Describe the healthcare in the country Role of government: The government really did nothing to help the healthcare in Iraq. Saddam Hussein and the government spent about $16-30 million dollars on healthcare. Accessibility: There was no easy access to healthcare. All the healthcare that they had was a complete mess making the accessibility hard.
When I was diagnosed in 2010, there was very few gluten free options for me and so it was difficult for me to adjust. My granddad and mom were diagnosed around the same year, in 2013, and in those short 3 years, there had been many new items sold as more people got diagnosed with the disease. But it’s still pretty dangerous for someone to go out to eat because in restaurants, who sometimes are just in it to make money because gluten free is a well-known fad diet, there is the possibility of cross contamination that can make anyone who is very sensitive (like me) to gluten to become accidentally ‘glutened’ (a slang term many Celiacs use to describe when you accidentally eat gluten). Sometimes a completely gluten free diet doesn’t make your pains go away completely. It may cause them to go down significantly but not completely go away (like me).
The school lunch program was not planned well. The government spends 12 billion dollars a year on the school lunch program and the cost is only rising. Many schools take advantage of the program and give the whole district free meals while in reality they are only supposed to give it to the children whose parents have a low income and are under the income line. Many of the cafeteria workers are not qualified and they lack the proper training to meet the requirements put by the government instead of training the workers they continue to not follow the rules, not because they do not want to because they do not know how to. Instead of the government taking away the funding they continue to fund the program and let these things occur.
They were given low pay and barely had enough food to survive. This makes the American Dream nearly impossible to achieve. In this novel, many people pass away, including Ona, Jurgis’ wife. Ona dies while giving birth to her stillborn baby. Jurgis goes in and out of jail many times due to many different things.
The farmers couldn 't meet their food needs without help. The low food levels then affects the stock breeders due to the feed balance deficit. This shortage makes it difficult for breeders to sell their livestock because nobody wants to come forth and buy it. Mali also has the possibility of a water shortage in Timbuktu and Kidal due to their lack of fuel. Without
