I'm a resident of Jefferson County, and this is a real problem. Unfortunately it's also not a new one. My county has been dealing with poverty for some time, and the economic crisis has accelerated a decline. I have started a Victory Gardens Against Hunger Campaign to help get produce to the food bank this summer. I welcome residents who want to participate.There is also a number of community garden projects beginning as well. We hope to have the Farmers' Market accept food stamps this summer and there will be a list online this month where you can get emergency boxes, and a hot meal during the week.

What we need is to face the problem together and with goverment assistance, and our own tenacity we can feed Jefferson County. No one should be hungry in our community.
