THE ROUNDUP

Hunger and poverty are severe problems in America, and in a down economy, the problem is only getting worse.

According to feedingamerica.org, in 2009, 43.6 million people (14.3 percent of the total population) in America were living in poverty, and in 2008, 49.1 million Americans lived in household where a food supply was insecure.

This is where Brophy stops in and lends a hand each November with the Turkey Drive.
