To Feed A Family

As gas prices skyrocket, food prices follow. Melissa Hilliard can no longer make her costs and her income meet in the middle. She and her husband both work full-time in the Atlanta area. They have some college education, but their jobs don't pay enough to support their three children. Recently Melissa swallowed her pride and made her first trip to the local food bank.

Melissa tells Dick Gordon about her struggles and her dreams, and the tricks she's discovered for stretching a food dollar in her kitchen. This story originally aired on June 9, 2008.
