Block Session 2: Ignite a Culture of Food Dignity

Governors Room (Lower Level)

With over 42 million food insecure Americans, hunger lurks on every corner. Clancy will illuminate for audience members how food insecurity is a hidden epidemic in the United States, and review why chronic disease prevention is not a priority for a client struggling to find their next meal. This interactive session integrates inspirational storytelling so that participants possess the mindset and skillset to ignite a culture of food dignity and bust through the stigma associated with food assistance programs.

Clancy will demonstrate why food access is a top priority and how dignifying food assistance has the power to transform the health of our next generation – to a healthy well-fed nation. Attendees will leave inspired to transform their approach to nutrition education and recognize creative ways to engage their clients through effective collaboration. Are you ready to ignite a culture of food dignity?
