A new survey of food insecurity in some of Fresno's poorest neighborhoods is shedding light on a problem that plagues much of the valley. On Valley Edition we talked to Philip Erro, the driving force behind the new "Fresno Hunger Count" project, and Andy Souza of the Community Food Bank. Souza says the new data may help local organizations like his be more proactive in meeting the needs of those who go hungry, rather than simply being reactive.
