Hunger remains a persistent reality for many New Yorkers. The USDA defines hunger as a physiological condition that many result from food insecurity. Food insecurity is an economic and social condition reflecting a household's inability to provide enough food for every person to live an active, healthy live.
Rebecca Polmateer, Program Director from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties, joins the podcast, Nature Calls: Conversations from the Hudson Valley, and goes into detail about the causes, prevalence, and realities of food insecurity. She also describes the numerous programs that are available to help those who are food insecure.
