Food insecurity in California

In this Article, the issue of California food Insecurity is addressed.   4 million Californians are struggling with food insecurity.     The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank says it's working harder the needs of families and individuals because food stamp programs are being cut   People have to literally decide between paying rent or eating and for most, having a place to live is more important than eating. “ 47 million people nationwide were reduced this month when a temporary boost to the federal program ended. That cut about $5 billion in annual funding.”   This ultimately results in families receiving $36 less then what they were accustomed to.     The Department of agriculture estimates that the   families lose 21 meals of month because of the cut.  

Article 2


In this article Republicans introduce a program that will cut 40 billion dollars in food stamps Democrats also proposed a cut also but it was 10 billion.   Both programs are over a 10 year span.   The republicans say that the extreme amount is because all the fraud and austerity.   That doesn’t make much sense though.   They probably didn’t consider how many elderly, children and disabled peple this will ultimately starve.     The amount of people on food stamps fluctuates with economy.   When people have jobs, less people use food stamps when people are out of jobs, more people are on food stamps and currently, more people are out work.
