Food Security Phi·lan·thro·py

An act or gift done or made so that everyone in our community has enough food for an active, healthy life

Being food secure means having enough food for an active, healthy life

In New Hampshire and Vermont over 172,000 people, including 48,600 children, are food insecure, meaning they don’t have regular access to nutritious food.* People with food insecurity have an elevated risk of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke and other chronic diseases.  You can help Dartmouth-Hitchcock address food insecurity for patients.  

*Indicators of food security are reported by the United States Department of Agriculture
