Food Security

When you ask a friend

to pick up a jug of milk,

how galling it feels

to be lowered

to such a humiliating level.

Yet, if that is the only source of food

you have for your children

you do whatever it takes to keep them alive.

And pray that next week

the food bank has more vegetables

instead of merely rice and pasta.

The Eat Healthy diets

only work if you can afford them.
