SERVE

We believe that having access to healthy and safe food is a right. We want to better understand our food system through the lens of service providers to enable us to better advocate for  policies and services that best support the accessibility of healthy and safe food on a consistent basis. We serve our community in three ways:

  • Medically Tailored Meals for Grandfamilies

  • Early Childhood Emergency Feeding Program

  • Emergency Prepared Meals for Shelters

 

SOLVE

Food insecurity is an ancient and complex social, economic, and political problem. As we believe food security is important and necessary, it is also shortsighted to only focus on households accessing healthy and safe food as the health and sustainability of the system is just as important as the food itself. There must be a movement that calls for food sovereignty, which inserts equity into all parts of our food system – from seed to fork. We believe everything needed to remove the barriers to families accessing healthy and safe food is within reach. We have the people, the resources and (sometimes) the will to achieve it. There is a need for a MOVEMENT to bring the three together.

The Healthy Food Movement is engaged in systems research and pilot studies that focus on:

  • ACCESSABILITY:

    • Prepared Meal Delivery

    • Medically Tailored Meals

  • SYSTEMS STRATEGY:

    • Food Cooperatives​

    • Food Network Succession Planning

    • Capacity Building

  • RESEARCH:

    • Food Insecurity and Public Health​

    • The Emotions Behind Eating

    • Intersections of Food Insecurity and Community Violence

We believe that as literacy is necessary for our ability to read and write and numeracy is the ability to understand how to work with numbers, food literacy is critical for personal self sufficiency and to support a more just and sovereign food system. Food literacy is having the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to choose, grow, prepare, and enjoy healthful food to support one's health, community, and the environment. 

The Healthy Food Movement addresses and advances the need for food literacy by offering:

  • Youth Classroom Cooking Demonstrations

  • Healthy Youth Ambassadors - Youth Food Literacy Program

  • Healthy Eating Cooking Classes

  • Virtual Cooking Classes

  • Introduction to Plant-based Eating

  • Lead Racial Wealth Gap and Equity Trainings

  • Host - Spilt Milk: The Food Trust Podcast
