More people seeking food aid in Twin Cities suburbs

Author:

KARE 11 reports that visits to suburban food shelves have increased 90 percent in the past three years, according to Hunger Solutions Minnesota. Dakota County has had the sharpest increase – 342 percent, KARE reports.

Hunger in the suburbs is not a new or local problem. Hunger lives in every county in America, even affluent areas, one leading activist told the Philadelphia Inquirer earlier this year.

Hunger – and help – were on the move to the Twin Cities suburbs last year, MPR reported.

In a related story, nearly six years into a 10-year project, homeless advocates say progress is being made to end homelessness in Hennepin County, MPR reports.
