2022 Stronger - P108 - Recipe for Equity: Hospital/Community Partnership Addresses Local Food Insecurity - On Demand
Throughout the 10-county service area of Foodlink, University of Rochester (UR) Medicine’s regional food bank, more than 152,000 residents experience food insecurity — meaning they have limited or uncertain access to enough food for everyone in their household. To better address food insecurity in our community, UR Medicine partnered with Foodlink to establish a hospital-based food pantry that meets patients where they are. During the session, our pantry team will share the importance of community partnerships, the implementation process and lessons learned and provide insight on future growth.
