This course sets the foundation for future Leah’s Pantry courses. Some historical context of food security and community nutrition approaches are introduced, followed by a discussion of the meaning of food in our lives, the role of trauma and adversity in individual and community relationships to food, and an overview of the stress response. Activities include videos, readings, and personal reflection opportunities.
Audience: For agency staff, volunteers, and community leaders. Note that this training is already included, at no additional cost, in our certification programs for NPP, Around the Table, and Around the Table: Nourishing Families. [If an agency has multiple participants, each participant must register separately so their registration email address can then be added to our online training system.]
Total Training Time: 90 minutes
