Building Nourishing Pantries
Training Objectives: In this training, participants will:
- Develop an understanding of how positive and adverse experiences (including trauma and toxic stress) affect individual and community relationships to food and dietary health.
- Learn the basic process and principles of a trauma-informed approach and how to apply it to pantry work
- Learn actionable steps that you can take to create client and community centered food distributions
- Collaboratively explore what role food pantries have in supporting community food security.
Audience: Food bank and pantry staff and volunteers, University Extension professionals, NPP implementers, and others that work in food distributions or food security.
