40. Hunger

There are 13 million children and teens in the United States who don’t have enough to eat. The COVID-19 pandemic put a huge burden on already-struggling families, and childhood hunger is at its highest level ever. Poor nutrition changes how young brains develop and affects learning, growth, health, and behavior. This episode is about hunger and food insecurity. Maria Segoviano tells us about how Yolo Food Bank increases food and nutrition security by connecting people with healthy, high-quality food. Then we travel to Phoenix, Arizona, where you can find the world's first food bank, one of the greenest deserts in North America, 150-year-old saguaro cactus, temperatures of 100°F over 100 days a year, franchises in four major pro sports leagues, and no daylight saving time.
