At any given moment some 50 million Americans are trying to figure out where or how they’ll get another meal.
A trip to the refrigerator reminds millions of their daily struggle: they don't have food, and they're broke.
"You just have to make due,” said Reamer Woods.
Woods said just getting by got old a long time ago. Woods said the only grocery store for people in North Tulsa is not dependable.
"I’m leaving this grocery store and going across town because they don't have what I wanted. I’m going south,” said Wood.
That’s not an option for everyone. Judy Kearney caught a ride to shop. 17% of people in the area don't have transportation, and here's the other struggle.
"Once you make more money, your food stamps get cut. Your housing gets cut," said Kearney.
"We need to focus on providing entrepreneurial opportunities, and educational opportunities," said Katie Plohockey with Tulsa Food Security Council.
Plohockey started the conversation. The panel watched this documentary: "A Seat at the Table." It highlights the hunger problem millions of Americans are facing.
"I didn't have the money and couldn't provide," said Tonya McCullough, she struggles to provide for her two youngest.
She has eight children, and three months ago her husband died.
"I've told myself I have to turn it over to God,” said McCullogh.
She's one of millions who hopes to have a meal over which to pray.
