Hydroponics is derived from two Greek words: “hydro,” meaning water, and “ponics,” meaning labor. The concept of using an aerated nutrient solution and additional lighting to provide energy for photosynthesis is both interesting and promising. Today, complex hydroponic systems can grow highly nutritious foods in rapid amounts of time, with customized lighting and controlled growing environments.

When I think about food insecurity, generally I think about people in the community who are not able to afford fresh food, about people who need the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP); the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) food and nutrition service; and the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). I think about people who don’t have access to clean water and who live on less than one dollar a day.
