Hunger affects every community in North Carolina. In Granville County, 7,090 people, (18.1% of the county population) are food insecure. Children and older adults have a greater risk of being hungry. When people lack access to adequate and healthy foods, their health and well-being suffers. Children are unable to concentrate in school, and people of all ages are more likely to be sick. There are several programs that help people access food, but the largest federal program is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly Food Stamps). In North Carolina the program is called Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) and operates through the Department of Health and Human Services. If you would like to find out if you may be eligible for FNS, contact the More In My Basket Toll-Free Information Line at 1-855-240-1451.

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Fresh corn on the cob

Heat the grill to medium. Pull back the husks to the base of each ear, remove the silk, and trim the tip. Close husk back into place around the ears, and place corn in a large bowl of cold water for 10 minutes. Remove corn from water and place on the grill; close the cover and grill for 15-20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes or until kernels are tender. Remove the husks and eat or cut corn from the cob. Can spread margarine, pesto, or seasonings on corn before cooking for different flavors.
