From the Article:

Natori Green with the Broadmoor Food Pantry says families are struggling with rising food costs, saying, "In January alone we've served over 533 families and double that amount of individuals."

Green says the food pantry served more families last month than any month during the pandemic. "A lot of kids are out of school they may not even have the opportunity to go to a summer camp, some summer camps require families to provide the meals," she said.

Food pantries can only provide so much, she says without access to supermarket produce, children will be forced to go without.
