It Takes More than Food: Promoting Health and Self-Sufficiency in Food Pantry Settings

Katie Martin, PhD


Food insecurity is a serious public health concern affecting nearly 12% of American households, resulting in long lasting social and health consequences. Individuals experiencing food insecurity have an increased risk of chronic diseases such as hyperlipidemia, obesity, hypertension and diabetes. Food pantries historically were created to provide a source of emergency food, but many low-income families rely on this assistance on a chronic basis. Nutrition and health interventions in the food pantry setting provide a novel opportunity to increase food security, diet quality and self-sufficiency. Join this webinar to learn about strategies to promote health in food pantry settings, using strategies such as SWAP (Supporting Wellness at Pantries), a brand new stop light nutrition education system. Participants will leave with a better understanding of ways to serve the underserved in the food pantry environment.
