NPR aired a sad piece on the Nunez family in Ohio who can no longer afford meat.
It’s a good thing they’re a radio channel.
Gloria Nunez has never worked. She says that since her car broke down (imagine that?) her daughter can’t look for a job either.
And, they’re scrimping on food:
The rising cost of food means their money gets them about a third fewer bags of groceries — $100 used to buy about 12 bags of groceries, but now it’s more like seven or eight.
They could probably do just fine with a few bags less of groceries, but that’s just me.
A little walking probably wouldn’t hurt either.
