Understanding the Social and Structural Drivers of Food and Nutrition Insecurity

Understanding the Social and Structural Drivers of Food and Nutrition Insecurity

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.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the prevalence and determinants of food and nutrition insecurity in military families
  2. Discuss potential policy and programmatic solutions to improve food and nutrition security in military families
  3. Explain what providers/practitioners can do to promote overall health and well-being in military families


Angela Odoms-Young, Ph.D. (she/her/hers) is an Associate Professor and Director of the Food and Nutrition Education in Communities Program (FNEC) and New York State Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP).
