Ross Richmond – Somerville Backpack Program, Fighting Childhood Hunger (4.28.15)

Join host KyAnn Anderson as she speaks with the Founder of the Somerville Backpack Program, Ross Richmond, about his organization and how they’ve been fighting to close the childhood food insecurity gap in the public school systems since 2014. Tune in to learn more about why Middlesex County has the highest level of hunger needs in the state, why young children are often the hardest hit when economic downturns arise, and just how far your donation of a mere five dollars a week can go to help end childhood hunger – you’d be surprised. A whole lot of good can happen for about the same price as that daily Starbucks latte.
