PARTNER WITH NUTRITION SERVICES
Second Harvest Food Bank's Nutrition Services is committed to improving the nutrition and health of low-income families in partnership with our agency programs and community groups.
Hunger and Health: Making the Connection
Research shows that people experiencing food insecurity are more likely to suffer from diet-related chronic diseases, including high blood pressure and diabetes. Factors contributing to this relationship include:
Less resources and access to healthy, affordable food
Cycles of limited food intake and overeating
High levels of stress due to financial and emotional pressures
Targeted marketing of products associated with obesity
Limited access to health care
Second Harvest's Nutrition Services team empowers individuals and families with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to establish healthier eating habits and maximize their resources for nutritious meals.
