Increasing food security and healthy habits in your member base during Covid-19

The coronavirus pandemic has shone a light on the impact that social determinants of health have on an individual’s total wellbeing and there is one area that has a particularly significant impact: food security. According to Feeding America, 50 million people – including more than 17 million children – may face hunger in the U.S. as a result of the pandemic. Food security is a key component in establishing healthy eating habits, and health plans can play an important role in equipping members with tools to access healthy foods – something that is needed now more than ever.
