The charitable food system as a change agent

In this paper, we suggest ways that the public health community can tap the system’s potential to strengthen community health and voices. We highlight (a) strategies to prioritize access to nutritious food and provide a dignified experience; (b) examples of how food pantries can be a portal to federal benefits, health care, and other resources; and (c) ideas on how these non-profit agencies can increase civic engagement and raise community voices.
