Food Bank–Based Diabetes Prevention Intervention to Address Food Security, Dietary Intake, and Physical Activity in a Food-Insecure Cohort at High Risk for Diabetes
Although food insecurity is associated with poor dietary intake and risk of chronic disease, few studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of diabetes prevention interventions delivered through food banks. The purpose of this pilot project was to assess the effectiveness of a food bank–delivered intervention aimed at improving food security and reducing risk factors for type 2 diabetes among at-risk clients. Project participants had significant improvements in food security status, dietary intake, physical activity, health status, and depression scores at mid-point and end of project.
