Food Scarcity USA

Food scarcity is a problem in both developed and developing worlds. Most often in the news we see food scarcity in developing nations where the solution is focused on production of food but in the developed nation, like the USA, the solution is on consumption, such as rethinking portion sizes for your family.

Food scarcity, in a prosperous nation, is an indication of places falling through the cracks, where they are under-served by commercial vendors or government programs.

In Holmes County Mississippi, where there is food scarcity in the center of farm country (article), for lack of commercial vendor coverage and house hold transportation, there are community food pantries where you least expect, such as the nearby Wesley Youth Foundation (search).

Particularly more information about the Food Pantry at the Wesley Youth Foundation.
