Session Type: Presentation


Moderator: Lauren Nocito, MS, RD, LDN, Director of Nutrition Education, School District of Philadelphia (Eat.Right.Now.)

Beth Brody, Outreach Director, SHARE Food Program

Kim Brenneman, Program Coordinator, School District of Philadelphia (EAT. RIGHT. NOW.)

In Pennsylvania, it has been estimated that 17.9% of children experience food insecurity, which presents an enormous challenge
for nutrition education in schools. This presentation will discuss a unique collaboration between the School District of Philadelphia’s
Eat.Right.Now. and SHARE Food Program that aims to both increase parent/caregivers’ knowledge through educational workshops as well as provide access to healthy foods through SHARE produce stands. This session will also explore how this model addresses the broader Policy, Systems, and Environmental (PSE) changes within schools and communities and how other organizations might employ a similar model.

Learning Objectives:

  1. To examine a case that integrates direct education with a PSE strategy (produce stand at a school).
  2. To discuss successes and challenges of this kind of collaboration.
