Event Details

The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has identified four Pillars of Food Security: Availability, Accessibility, Utilization, and Stability. Food citizens require empowerment of these four pillars to achieve and sustain food security and nutrition through local food networks with food, nutrition education and policy, system, and environmental changes. In this deep-dive workshop, attendees will first tour and learn about DC Central Kitchen, a nationally recognized community organization in Washington D.C. doing innovative food security and nutrition work. Then, Food and Nutrition Extension Education practitioners and session attendees will participate in moderated table discussions to formulate takeaways ideas and action steps to improve food security and nutrition education by applying the four pillars of food security for their underserved and diverse target audience communities (e.g., underserved rural/urban areas, Native Nations, immigrants, and refugees)
