yasminv On 1.20.2021 we will have a true leader, a person who can empathize and appreciate the utter fear those who are food-insecure live with on a daily basis. We are America and we will be back again in a little over a month. yasminv If democrats didn't keep people poor in exchange for power, there'd be less food insecurity.
yasminv That’s because Americans have been pitted against each other for decades so they no longer know what’s good for them. Now, they’re a bunch of “poor me’s” while the politicians are pocketing & misusing our tax dollars!! yasminv Trump’s legacy. Me first initiative. yasminv Food insecurity in the USA is completely unacceptable. Contact your representatives in Congress to pass a 2nd stimulus. Also, donate to your local food banks
