Food Security in Focus

Food Security in Focus LogoTake advantage of OneOp’s Food Security in Focus collection offering live and on-demand webinars related to food security.

Among our nation’s active-duty service members and their families, 24 percent are food insecure. Food insecurity adversely impacts racial/ethnic minority populations, lower-income populations, and rural and remote populations. Additionally, a rise in economic insecurity throughout the Covid-19 pandemic has contributed to increased food insecurity in vulnerable populations. Join OneOp as we focus on expanding food security for the military family and mobilizing family service professionals to work together at federal, state, and local levels.

Have you used the 2-question screener from the USDA to screen families you work with for food insecurity? Learn more about the assessment in this brief video.
