Talk Radio 1360 am – Sioux City, Iowa

NEARLY 400-THOUSAND IOWANS, INCLUDING 150-THOUSAND OVER THE AGE OF 50, ARE CONSIDERED AT RISK FOR BEING ABLE TO ACQUIRE ENOUGH NUTRITIONAL FOOD ON A WEEKLY BASIS.

THAT WAS THE TOPIC OF A SIOUX CITY MEETING HOSTED FRIDAY BY AARP AND THE IOWA FOOD BANK ASSOCIATION.

KENT SOVERN, THE STATE DIRECTOR OF AARP IOWA, SAYS HIS ORGANIZATION IS TRYING TO BUILD A PARTNERSHIP OF LOCAL FOOD BANKS WITH BUSINESS AND GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES TO HELP COMBAT HUNGER:


OC…..TO THAT OBJECTIVE. :10

ONE NEW RESOURCE IS A HUNGER DIRECTORY. STEVEN LAUER, PROGRAM COORDINATOR OF THE WORLD FOOD PRIZE, SAYS IT WILL HELP ORGANIZATIONS CREATE PARTNERSHIPS WITH EACH OTHER TO COMBAT HUNGER:


OC……PEOPLE ON BOARD. :18

LAUER SAYS THE DIRECTORY HAS 180 ORGANIZATIONS ACROSS THE STATE PROFILED IN IT AT IOWA HUNGER DIRECTORY DOT-ORG.

SOVERN SAYS THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO HELP THE HUNGRY BY GOING ONLINE:


OC…….YOUR FOOD BANK. :24

SOVERN SAY THE NEED TO HELP THE HUNGRY IS INCREASING, AND WE HAVE TO CHANGE THE WAY WE VIEW THE POOR, BECAUSE MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN PLACED IN CIRCUMSTANCES THEY CAN’T CONTROL BECAUSE OF THEIR AGE OR ECONOMIC SITUATION.
