Key Considerations for Nutrition Education Programs and Interventions for Individuals Experiencing Food Insecurity: An Evidence Review
This report presents the results of a scoping review of nutrition education interventions in food banks, pantries, and similar settings using the RE-AIM framework with an equity lens. For nearly two decades, food banks have partnered with community-based/service organizations and agencies to provide individuals access to nutrition education. More recently, many food banks have launched nutrition education efforts internally, hiring nutrition educators and health promotion specialists to provide instruction on various topics, including the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. These findings can inform recommendations for program models that the Feeding America network can apply in their communities to ensure equitable, community responsive nutrition education programs that can be implemented within the charitable food system.
