Some students in the Richland One School District regularly rely on the meals they receive at school. According to Feeding America’s 2020 National Report on Childhood Hunger, the national child food insecurity rate is projected to increase by anywhere from 1.6 to 9.3% due to the effects of COVID-19 on employment. Reporter Emma Dooling talks with a local teacher about fighting childhood hunger during a global pandemic and how her school has adapted to help young learners.

    When the pandemic struck, more people turned to gardening than ever before. Some picked it up as a hobby, others wanted to relieve stress, and many needed a way to put food on the table. However, many of these people were new gardeners in need of guidance. In Columbia, Community Garden Coordinator Jacqueline Williams used to teach in-person gardening classes, but these programs were put on hold. Reporter Sarah Hudock-Jeffrey shows us how Williams found a way to create a virtual community of gardeners from all backgrounds that take advice from Williams and help each other out.
