About This Webinar:
Emerging research has shown that many military families and veterans struggle to put food on the table and experience difficulty making ends meet. This issue is particularly important since food and nutrition insecurity adversely impacts family health and well-being and contributes to poor social and economic outcomes at the individual, household, and societal levels. Moreover, studies indicate that Black, Indigenous, and people of color are disproportionately at risk for insecurity.
This discussion will highlight the social and structural determinants of food and nutrition insecurity and examine strategies and approaches for improving food access and equity in military families as well as all families.
- Describe the prevalence and determinants of food and nutrition insecurity in military families
- Discuss potential policy and programmatic solutions to improve food and nutrition security in military families
- Explain what providers/practitioners can do to promote overall health and well-being in military families
