I was cranky when I woke up this morning.  I slept fine, that wasn't the issue.  I had already closed the chapter of "snow" in my mind for the year and unfortunately, I woke up to snow on the ground.  While I was still sitting in my bed I uttered the words, "You've got to be kidding me".

I dug out my fleece-lined leggings, and softest hoodie and got ready to head out into my cold living room to make my coffee.  I needed all of my comfy items in order to make today a successful one...because snow sucks.

What Foods Do You Consider to Be "Comfort Foods"?

Soup. Grilled cheese. What foods bring you comfort?  In Minnesota, we seem to have a weird thing with tator tots so maybe your favorite comfort food is topped with that.  Let me know what your #1 food might be over on my Facebook page - Jessica On The Radio.

Why aren't these individuals getting health insurance on their own? 

During a conversation that I had with Rebecca Snapp at The Rochester Salvation Army, she indicated that most of the patients they see at the Good Samaritan Clinic are actually ineligible for health insurance.  Although some individuals who are treated are homeless, the majority of the patients at the Good Samaritan Clinic represent the working poor.

What type of healthcare is being provided at the Good Samaritan Clinic?

Individuals that need insulin, medication, dental care are all common needs addressed at the Good Samaritan Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.  The priorities of those asking for help are concerned about their kids, paying for housing, and ensuring they have enough food and healthcare is not a top financial priority.  Healthcare is a comfort item that they can't afford.
