Guest:  Brie Dilley Director of Development South East Community Outreach (SECOR) is a food market that serves Arapahoe, Douglas and Elbert county.  They have a building that is set up like a normal grocery store, a volunteer works with them to help them get what they need.  Suburban poverty is very different than what you would see downtown and is also the fastest form of growing segment of poverty.  Suburban poverty is people who are doubled up in houses, it could have also come from a divorce, job loss or even medical bankruptcy.  People think that food insecurity went down because of the end of the pandemic but this year they have seen an increase of 220% in the people they serve.
