Foodbank is looking for healthpartners
The Foodbank started a program called the Healthy Food Pantry Program (HFPP) at two of their partner agencies, Calvary Revival Church in Norfolk, and East End Baptist Church in Suffolk. The HFPP is funded by Sentara Obici to help address food insecurity as a social determinant of health (which is AWESOME). The goal of the HFPP is to empower individuals with the knowledge and skills to actively embrace healthy choices and break the cycles that prevent them from managing their chronic conditions. Participants qualify for the HFPP by screening positive to food insecurity and having a diet-related chronic illness (diabetes, prediabetes, heart disease, hypertension or high cholesterol). Once enrolled, participants receive:
Another goal of the HFPP is to improve partnerships between healthcare and food banks. Often times, individuals facing food insecurity are not connected with assistance programs until they’ve already been confronted with the difficult choice of how to prioritize their limited resources (ie. Food vs. medicine vs. bills). There are opportunities for healthcare providers to screen for food insecurity, in hopes of connecting food-insecure individuals with free food and social services before crisis mode hits.
They are already at capacity for the classes that they are able to teach, themselves. They are looking for a student, intern or volunteer to lead these classes. Let Meaghan know if you think of anyone in Suffolk that may be a good community health partner.
