What’s the state of hunger in Berks County? We had researchers from our Berks Vital Signs project investigate.
As part of its 25th Anniversary Celebration, Berks County Community Foundation is funding a variety of information projects at Berks Vital Signs. The first was a recent independent poll of Berks voters on the future of Berks Heim, the county-owned nursing facility. This report on hunger — a health and well-being issue that affects tens of thousands of our fellow residents — will be followed by at least three more information projects on the following themes: education, the environment, and the economy.
