Connecting with the Community: Food Insecurity and Hunger

Food insecurity is known to impact health status, including putting individuals at greater risk for chronic diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, and kidney disease.

Individuals with diet-sensitive chronic disease and food insecurity experience more difficulties managing their health. Research shows that over $77.5 billion in additional U.S. healthcare costs are attributed to food insecurity each year.

Healthcare organizations can learn to understand how food insecurity occurs and to connect individuals and families to healthy food, food banks, and other community-based resources.

Hear from Feeding America about its work at the national and community level to connect with and support healthcare providers partnering with food banks. You’ll also hear from St. Luke’s University Health Network on what they are doing in their clinics and training program.
