Applying Family-Centered Care to Food Insecurity During COVID-19

By: Rachel Kozkowski and Karen Wayman

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.
