About Our Community
This community is a space for Housing Is members interested in the intersections of affordable housing and nutrition. Research shows that many low-income families experience food insecurity and that hungry children perform worse in school. Affordable housing can be a platform to help families access healthy foods and eating habits. The Housing Is initiative stands on the notion that affordable housing is influenced by a variety of systems, and that it is only through cross-sector collaboration that we will build the partnerships that will help improve lives. Use the features in this community to discuss programs and policies, post research and reports, publicize events, share case studies and best practices, seek input and feedback from fellow members, and connect with interested in nutrition.
