Food Bank of CNY’s Food $en$e program offers grocery packages for $15.50
Linda Davis and her husband don’t get out much. “If Phoenix and Baldwinsville fell off the map, I’d be gone,” Davis said. “I really don’t leave the area.” The couple is also on a fixed income.

Once a month, people who want to participate sign up at the host site near their home, pre-paying $15.50 in cash or food stamps for the food package. Later in the month, when the food package is ready to be picked up, the customers return to the same site for their delivery.

The number of cases reported annually has increased nearly 25-fold since national surveillance began in 1982, making it a huge public health problem. So what should we do about it? To start, we should educate ourselves about the problem.
