Roxanne Barton knows she should eat three servings of fruit a day, but says she can’t afford to because she receives so little money from the Department of Community Services to pay for her special diet.

“I have one apple a day because that’s all I can squeeze out and I’m constantly running out of milk,” she said Thursday.

“And the food insecurity is so bad at the end of the month like you’re almost to the point you’re so preoccupied with what you’re going to eat.”
