The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines food insecurity as a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. In 2018, an estimated 11.1 percent of American households were food insecure, at least some time during the year. North Carolina is the 10th hungriest state in the nation with nearly 590,000 households without enough food to eat each day.
Dr. Ammerman’s presentation outlined the genesis and development of her public health initiative, Good Bowls, aimed at addressing these worrisome facts. Watch the video of her presentation and read more about her program.
