NYC Coalition Against Hunger raises food insecurity awareness in Webb City

WEBB CITY, Mo. – People shopping for some home-made and home-grown foods also had an opportunity to learn about efforts to combat hunger.

The Executive Director of the New York City Coalition Against Hunger visited the Webb City farmer’s market Tuesday. He talked about local and national efforts to fight hunger, reminding people that hunger was a huge issue even before the pandemic.

“It’s still very discouraging that were the wealthiest nation in the history of the world, we have over 500 billionaires, and yet tens of millions of our neighbors can’t afford enough food,” said Hunger Free America CEO Joel Berg. “We need to fix that, and my nationwide tour is reminding us of why that is so critical.”

Berg is on a national tour that will end on the west coast.
