Hunger Around Us

In this series, the Black Hills Pioneer staff examines the effects of hunger around us in our state and local communities.

We often associate hunger with poverty, but “food insecurity,” or the lack of access at certain times to enough food for an active, healthy life, due to lack of money and other resources, crosses economic and geographic boundaries throughout the year across all population indicators. How does hunger affect families, children, seniors, those on reservations?

This eight-part series examines these questions as we are reminded of a community’s needs — and the ways that we can all help to feed the hungry. The stories will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the coming weeks.
