Tackling Hunger CHNA Guidance

The community health needs assessments (CHNAs) conducted by nonprofit hospitals present an opportunity to identify and address a broad spectrum of factors that impact health and well-being in local communities. The newly released Tackling Hunger CHNA Guidance was developed as a practical guide for hospitals to address an important factor in community health: the community food environment. This can be a valuable tool for food banks and hunger-relief organizations to share with partner hospitals seeking to address social determinants of health such as food insecurity.  The guide includes user-friendly tools and strategies and features practical examples of collaborative partnerships between hospitals and food system stakeholders across the country.
