“My daughter drinks milk all the time. The milk you brought in has run out. I gave an IOU to the store so that I wouldn’t ask you for it.

“I am too embarrassed to ask, but when can you send some in?” “We have been well since your support started to come in. At least, I have some legumes in the kitchen. I say, ‘I can cook some beans.”

The right of every child to sufficient food is guaranteed by both the Constitution and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which we are a party to. So, why can’t these children access even milk?
