Explore FRAC and the American Academy of Pediatrics’ latest toolkit to learn more about how pediatricians can play a critical role in addressing food insecurity. Food insecurity is a critical child health issue that impacts millions of children and families in all communities across the U.S. Unfortunately, 1 in 7 U.S. children lives in a household struggling against food insecurity. These levels have only deepened during the COVID-19 pandemic. Black and Latinx households with children continue to face disproportionately high rates of food insecurity before and during the pandemic. Explore our toolkit to learn more about how pediatricians can play a critical role in addressing food insecurity. Also, check out our Pediatric Survey.
FRAC and AAP gratefully acknowledge the Elevance Health Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Elevance Health Inc., for support of their work to help medical providers screen and intervene to address food insecurity.
