Siskiyou Food Assistance

The interactive map at the website of Feeding America shows the levels of food insecurity county-by-county across the country. 

And one county in our region stands out: Siskiyou County is the county most likely to contain hungry people, and it is listed as the most food-insecure county in California. 

Siskiyou Food Assistance is one of several organizations working to help feed local residents.  Denise Spayd of SFA joins us.
