Gina Cornia, the Executive Director for Utahns Against Hunger, joins Matt Pacenza on the HEAL Utah Podcast to discuss UAH’s work fighting to limit food insecurity in Utah. Gina discusses the groups that face the biggest hunger problem and the barriers that prevent people from accessing benefits. Gina and Matt discuss some of the solutions that would alleviate food insecurity, something that 1 in 8 Utah households deal with, such as a state level Earned Income Tax Credit. They also discuss the sales tax on food proposal, which Utahns Against Hunger and other groups successfully defeated this past legislative session. They end discussing changes in the Salt Lake City’s homeless shelter locations.
