This list offers a selection of tools and resources that public health practitioners can use to design program and policy interventions to act on food insecurity.
Contributors discuss food insecurity as a determinant of health equity, shifting public health practice towards upstream solutions, and practical actions that public health practitioners can take to address food insecurity.
