Food is Medicine
Marketplace is offering a nutrition program that is reframing conversations around healthy behaviors and lifestyles alongside food insecurity. We hope to create a safe space where community neighbors can talk about how nutrition education and hunger relief can work toward trauma-informed nutrition security.
This means that people should not only have access to healthy food but that they receive and learn about it in a way that:
-Recognizes how stress and adversity affect human health and behavior
-Avoids shaming, stigma, and blame
