In this Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012 photo, Wilna Alexander, 54, a part-time cook for a Jackson, Miss., community services operation and one of an estimated 476,000 uninsured Mississippians, cleans up after preparing the batter for a baked dessert for a pre-school center and a senior citizens meal program.
