Applying Family-Centered Care to Food Insecurity During COVID-19
The Department of Family-Centered Care at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, Stanford, launched a Family Food Support Program in May 2020. The program aimed to:
- Provide immediate resources to address acute food insecurity in clinical settings through food items and vouchers.
- Establish pathways of distribution with health care providers to provide caregivers with multiple points of access to resources.
- Partner with community groups and organizations to support families outside the clinical setting.
