Combating the Issue of Food Insecurity
We recently finished a project with the National Association of Community Health Centers, where many of the patients who use CHCs live in areas classified as food deserts. We created a video that showcased how some of these health centers were finding new and creative ways to help their patients gain access to fresh fruits and vegetables and take charge of their health. The goal was that by sharing best practices, other community health centers could find ways to replicate these programs or create similar initiatives in their centers.
As I sit down to our Thanksgiving table this Thursday, I know I will be thinking of this project and feeling extra thankful for the food we have at our table. I hope watching this video will inspire you to feel the same way.
