Description

This webinar will provide strategies on how community health organizations can help expand the availability and quality of affordable healthy food, including locally-grown food, as part of a comprehensive approach to supporting equitable and healthy communities. Subject matter experts will share the results on a national study of small store food distribution strategies. Community presenters will share stories from three healthy corner store programs, each using different innovative distribution models including food hubs, gleaning (or collecting excess fresh foods), working with community gardens and urban agriculture, hub-and-spoke delivery systems, and leveraging The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) programs.

By the end of this webinar, participants should be able to:
• Describe three innovative food distribution strategies
