We’re in the middle of Nordic’s Community Giveback Week during which we're striving to make an impact in the communities where we live and work. We have service events going on in multiple cities across the country.
Here in Madison, we’ve been partnering with Second Harvest Foodbank for years, and we’ll be volunteering there later this week. One of their more recent initiatives, the HungerCare Coalition, caught our attention as they are focusing on educating and encouraging healthcare professionals to treat food insecurity as a medical condition.
What is food insecurity?
Why does food insecurity matter?
In Wisconsin, 1 in 8 are food insecure, and 1 in 5 of our children are food insecure. These are the local numbers. Although it may vary across the country, we know any amount of food insecurity is simply too much.
