Guest view: Community suppers and signs of hope

In 2006, if a person or family was hungry, there was nowhere in Morgan Hill for them to go for a hot meal (except for the wonderful Senior Lunch Program offered for seniors). Brian Cunningham, a Catholic lay person, and Martha’s Kitchen, a nonprofit organization in San Jose, conducted research and found that food insecurity and hunger were higher in South County, including in Morgan Hill, than anywhere else in Santa Clara County, and that there were fewer resources available in South County than elsewhere.
