Here And There with Dave Marash

Hunger has always been a persistent problem in the impoverished State of New Mexico, but as with so many things, hunger has been made worse by the Covid-19 pandemic, especially hunger among NM’s children.  Elizabeth Miller of NM in Depth has been reporting on the hunger problem and how public school systems and volunteer organizations have been trying to solve it.  She says, raising past limits on who can get free food, how much and where and how they can get it may point towards future directions for America’s social safety net.
