Battling Hunger in MT

(40 minutes) How many families, seniors, kids go hungry in Montana? According to the Montana Food Bank Network and Helena Food Share, 1 in 7 Montanans experience food insecurity. That’s a pretty high number considering the USDA estimates 30-40% of the food supply in the U.S. is wasted. But the battle against hunger is aggressively taken up by businesses, organizations, and hundreds of individuals across our state and in our communities. Listen to the podcast to hear more about the challenges some of your neighbors may face and how hunger is addressed in Montana’s urban and rural communities.
