For our day two supper we had baked sweet potato, the can of beans in tomato sauce and some of our frozen mixed veggies.
While we weren’t hungry after our meal we certainly could have gone for some Earth Balance! But again we couldn’t afford it and I kind of felt upset about it.
I could see how when you don’t have choices or options because you can not afford them how one might start to get angry. Especially children who don’t understand why their friends might be able to have things and they can’t. Children are wonderful at picking out inequities and they have an ability to see when things aren’t fair.
Food insecurity is really unfair and it makes me angry. If it made me angry under such superficial circumstances I can only imagine how it really feels to lack choices and to be unable to feed your family.
