The Connection Between Hunger and Health

In this episode, we’ll explore the connection between hunger and health, poverty and obesity, and the impact of food worry. Welcome to Rights Not Charity. This podcast series is about a big idea, ensuring everyone has enough food, not as a charitable gift, but as a fundamental human right. My name is Christina Wong and I’m the director of Public Policy and Advocacy at Northwest Harvest, a food justice organization and statewide food bank based in Seattle, Washington. Our guest today is Dr. Ben Danielson, a pediatrician with the University of Washington.

Learning “HOW” to Apply Racial Equity to Policies, Advocacy, Programs, and Service Provision to End Hunger

This webinar helps participants understand the correct definition of racial equity (including the differences between racial equity and diversity, and the role racial equity has in addressing systemic racism to end hunger). In addition, the webinar provides direct examples of “HOW” racial equity can be successfully applied to policies, program design and service implementation. Highlights are featured from the Racial Equity and Hunger Report, which provides detailed ways for how racial equity can be applied to SNAP, WIC and various Child Nutrition Programs. After reviewing these concrete examples, the webinar offers how to use the Racial Equity Methodology Tool, so audience members can start applying racial equity within the policies people design/support, and the programs they implement.
