A Closer Look: Spotlight on Diabetes
The risk of diabetes among those who are food insecure is about two times higher than those who are not food insecure. Feeding America estimated that 33% of the households it serves include someone diagnosed with diabetes. This spotlight issue brief developed by Feeding America’s Health Equity Action League (HEAL) in collaboration with the Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists raises awareness about the intersection of food insecurity and diabetes. The brief offers suggestions on actions organizations and individuals can take to advance health equity and ensure all individuals living with diabetes have a fair opportunity to live long and healthy lives.
