Many Latino families struggle to get enough food to feed their families.
They often face hunger. Even if they do get enough food, what they have is often nutritionally vacant. This contributes to a variety of disparities in diabetes, heart disease, and other health conditions.
We need an environment of food equity.
Let’s use #SaludTues on Tuesday, May 2, 2023, to discuss emerging strategies to change environments, systems, and policies to encourage equitable access to affordable, healthy food in our schools and communities across the nation for Latinos and all people!
