New Hunger Action Month declared in Missouri

JOPLIN, Mo – Governor Parson proclaims Hunger Action Month to combat hunger in Missouri.

“When people think of hunger and food insecurity, they may often think of people in other cities, other states, or other nations, but the reality is these issues exist right here in our local communities,” said Governor Parson.

Today KOAM’s Jaylon Banks spoke with Rodney Rambo of Crosslines in Joplin about what he has in the fight against hunger in the area.

“I think the biggest thing we’re hearing from families coming into Crosslines right now is the cost of everything is higher currently. If you’re a family working really hard and living paycheck to paycheck, t’s maybe not even getting by,” said Rambo.
