Letter to the Editor: ‘Inequality is a huge problem’

It’s regrettable that the Cherry Hill Food Pantry will be vacating its present location. The pantry provides a valuable service that people should think of not as a “charity,” but rather as a community resource they themselves may need some day.

Despite talk of a “strong economy” by some of our mass media and the Trump administration, the fact is that inequality is a huge problem in the U.S. and has been getting worse since the last century. Hunger is just one aspect of the problem. Homelessness and the millions who go without dental care are other manifestations, and that’s just for openers.

I realize that The Sun is a local and national paper. Nevertheless, it’s important to point out the facts to people so that they can form intelligent opinions and vote accordingly.
