Building Food Security: A Shared Vision

Central themes include:

  • Grasping the issue: Identifying the scope of food insecurity in Philadelphia and the resources available to address this issue
  • SNAP benefits: Eligibility, the application process, and troubleshooting issues with the application
  • Healthy food choices as disease prevention and how SNAP-Ed can help: using evidence-based nutrition, shopping, and food prep education to help clients use SNAP benefits effectively
  • Advocacy and Promoting systemic change: Panel discussion on the interconnectedness to other poverty-related issues, current advocacy efforts, and strategies to further influence local policy maker decisions
