Quotation for Today

“This is the neediest period I’ve seen in my 20-year career.”  

Leah Schmidt, Nutrition Director, Hickman Mills C-1 district, Kansas City, Missouri.

The source of this quotation is The New York Times article, "Line Grows Long for Free Meals at U.S. Schools."  The article attributes the increase in poverty for the district's children to the dire economic conditions   (e.g., closed businesses, lost jobs, etc.) in the communities that support the school district.
