“Getting to produce things and share them with others is a deeply satisfying practice…And it does something that maybe people experiencing poverty don’t get as much access to–which is being considered experts in their field and getting credit for the work that they do.” –Hannah Lencheck, Advocacy Coordinator, Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard
