About The VLOG

According to the USDA, more than 38 million people, including 12 million children experience food insecurity in the United States.  Community gardens, open markets and urban farmers help foster collaborations to help bridge gaps in food insecurity.

In this VLOG we highlight some of our favorite markets, gardens and farms, as we educate on food access inequities and how community efforts can help nurse advocates, community leaders, and public health experts create additional strategies to improve health disparities.

Social Determinant

Food access is a direct determinant of food security.  Disparities exist due to lack of economic access to food that meets people’s dietary needs as well as their food preferences.

Food Access

Food access is a major social and economic condition associated with the most serious and costly health problems in the United States.

Community

Gaining access to healthy and affordable food can be a challenge for some residents in vulnerable communities.  It is important to meet them where they are and educate for maximum access.
