The webinar featured two projects that are creating new linkages between health systems and food systems to better serve their communities. While promoting individual health is a primary aim, these projects are demonstrating how focusing on food security can reap benefits for the healthcare sector and the community as a whole. By forming community partnerships and data systems linking social service providers, food banks, hospitals/health systems, and other sectors, these projects are fostering environments that improve food access and ultimately lead to better health outcomes and lower costs.
