  1. the state of being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food.
Many families in each of our towns struggle to get sufficient nutritious food on the table each day.  During the school year, kids can get meals for free or reduced prices at school.  During the summer – it is harder to meet those nutritional goals.   So how many kids is that, exactly?   Here are some numbers to ponder, sorted by town(s).
