Eye On Boise

Don’t eat - no, eat

Rep. Margaret Henbest, D-Boise, is a nurse who has made a point in recent years of urging her fellow House members to lose weight and eat healthy. But today, she was sponsoring a resolution at the Senate State Affairs Committee, HCR 60, that promotes hunger awareness and declares October of 2006 to be “Hunger and Food Insecurity Awareness Month.”

Henbest told the senators, “This is an interesting resolution for me, because I’m the one who keeps harping on people in the House for eating too much food.”

The resolution makes note of hunger problems in Idaho.
