Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Breaking Black: 1 in 5 children face food insecurity

"Food is facing gentrification that may well put traditional meals out of reach for those who created the recipes. Despite the hype, these ingredients have always been delicious, nutritious and no less healthy than other sources of protein. As we talk about cuts to SNAP benefits and the health issues created by diets heavy on processed foods, we cannot ignore that for many home cooking is no longer accessible. The ability to afford food is being hindered by inflation in basic food costs, as well as by the economic impact of a food becoming “cool.” Hunger has always been an issue in America, with one in six Americans facing food insecurity on a regular basis.

One in five of those people are American children."  | theGrio
