Food Insecurity

Urmi Desai, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center

We are working with the organization Choosing Healthy and Active Lifestyles for Kids (CHALK). CHALK has a mobile market that provide fruits, veggies, and other less available nutritious foods to eligible families in the community. However, many of these families are scared to leave the house right now, and do not know that this food is still available. We have three Spanish speaking volunteers that are making calls to families informing them food is still available and registering them for the mobile market.
