Solutions for Food Insecurity

Did you have enough to eat this month? Did your neighbor? About 13 percent of Alaskans are food insecure — many of them are children or elderly. But there are ways to help solve this problem.

Join us on Talk of Alaska as we discuss the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and other ways Alaskans are working together to get food on everyone’s tables. This program is part of Alaska Public Media’s new Solutions Desk, a look at what’s working to make Alaska’s communities stronger.
