Letter: Rural food solutions

I recently read a post about a display at the Anchorage Museum comparing the cost of some items in remote villages versus a couple of large cities. The price difference was alarming.

I learned of a possible quick solution from The BayPac where Alaska Air National Guard planes could fly in food as part of their training missions at a lower cost.

Please explain why this can’t be done so villagers can have food at a less expensive price while longer-term solutions are considered.

It’s food! Can politics be put aside for a change?
