“Local Produce for Local Food Banks”

Article Link

This July 16, 2015 segment on the WNEP-16 News Station talks about how the delay in passing a state budget is impacting a program for connecting farmers with food banks to not only make fresh produce more readily available, but to decrease waste of said produce by decreasing the amount of transporting involved in getting produce to food banks.

I do realize this isn’t exactly a mental health issue, but for the people who rely on help from food banks, having reliable access to food and not worrying as much about where their next meal is coming from can have an impact on their mental health and whether they are able to have the nutrients needed to keep going despite their financial struggles as they try to overcome their situations.
