Gordon, Jennie (2020, Wyoming first lady)

Food insecurity is a largely invisible problem, most typically experienced within the privacy of a home or kept an uncomfortable secret in a school setting.

Walk into any grocery store in Wyoming, and it’s hard to imagine how anyone might not have enough to eat. But that’s the irony of hunger: It isn’t that there isn’t enough food to eat, but that families and children aren’t always able to access that food. Kids who don’t have reliable access to food are much more likely to face unhealthy, unsuccessful and uncertain futures.
