    I can relate to this article, because i know what its like to not have food in your house and having to struggle. My mom is a single mom who works two jobs and tries to provide what she can for me with no help. But there are many things we can control and sometimes certain bills would be more important than buying food. I hope that this article helps people struggling to put dinner on the table and can create more food programs for non wealthy people.

    I live in Centreville ,VA more towards the Chantilly border. I myself have witnessed and know families who have experienced from children going hungry. I from experience know and understand what it feels like to not have food and other necessities. I think it is very good that this article was published because it brings awareness to this issues and hopefully helps the children who are hungry get the proper nutrition that they deserve because it is not fair that a child should go hungry in one of the wealthiest countys in America.

    Its shocking to see and hear that Fairfax County, being one of the wealthiest county in the US, has hunger issues. I can’t believe that there are not more food banks or just more employment so that not as many people have to go hungry every day. I think that everyone needs to pitch in and help these people.

    I also don’t understand how Fairfax County is the second richest county and still has hunger issues. I live in Centreville too and I was also suprised Centreville is light blue witch means 18%-20% kids are hungry.
