The session will take a deep dive into three recent initiatives to advance the health and well-being of families struggling with food insecurity. Learn from experts about (a) the multi-sector creation of a state-wide Food is Medicine Plan; (b) improved medical coding for screening and intervening to address food insecurity, and (c) a new nutrition rating system designed for use in food banks. Discuss opportunities to replicate these initiatives as well as other key learnings and resources from Feeding America and FRAC.
