Cynthia advocates to Senator Glazer for more aid to those in the population experiencing food insecurity, defined as not having enough access to food, or food of an adequate quality, to meet one's basic needs. For the improved health of the people, Cynthia advocates for more access to fruits and vegetables, food-as-medicine, produce prescriptions, medically tailored meals, and increased food assistance programs (including food stamps) for those in the population experiencing food insecurity.
42 million people in the United States alone are experiencing food insecurity. That is about 1 in 8 people! In the world, the U.N. reports 828 million experience hunger and/or food insecurity.
“Cynthia's story is incredible and it touched me because its not like any story that I’ve heard. I’ve heard a lot of stories about people who suffer from a partner’s illness and losing their homes and there is a heaviness from it. What was so refreshing is that while there is a serious aspect to what you experienced with your husband, you brought a lightness to it that came from you spirit. Your spirit has been what has sustained you and combined with your husband’s spirit, that is what has sustained the both of you. The fact that you have maintained your beautiful relationship throughout is quite a testament and really quite remarkable. Often when couples go through something as life challenging as you both have, a lot of times their relationship doesn’t survive, but yours has and that’s what is truly incredible. And the history that you have written this beautiful book and you actually implemented the principles you talked about is just wow! You’ve come through a very difficult time with grace and joy and that is just amazing. You have demonstrated so much power, strength and determination in just being who you are and I look forward to seeing you and your story on screen or on stage somewhere soon.”
