Food prices are rising all around the country—all around the world, actually. That affects everyone, but it can especially take a toll on organizations such as food banks, which are in the business of purchasing and distributing large quantities of food. We ask Deborah Flateman, CEO of the Maryland Food Bank, how they’re making do.
We’re working on our own project to track the cost of food throughout Baltimore. We need your help. As you’re out shopping for your Thanksgiving dinner (or, you know, Tuesday night ice cream) call or text us at 410-881-3162. Tell us the location of the store and how much a quart of milk costs. The regular stuff—not organic. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll map out the results, and discuss our findings on air in a couple weeks.
