#WitnessesToHunger: New Haven Member Speaks With Yale Students

“Last autumn, on November 17 at Café Med, the crowd at the School of Medicine’s 24th Annual Hunger and Homelessness Auction grew quiet as Kim Hart, a 55-year-old lifelong New Haven resident, came to the microphone to provide a firsthand look at what it means not to have enough to eat. Hart, who lives in the Beaver Hill section of the city, took her listeners back to 2011, a harrowing moment when the only things left in the cupboard were “a two-pack of ramen noodles, a half loaf of bread, and some peanut butter and jelly.” She used what she had to feed her then-11-year-old son.”
