Kaiser Permanente Bolsters Access to Healthy, Nutritious Food in Hard Times
Date:12/22/2009

banks develop nutritional guidelines for food they distribute.
  • Manna Food Center of Gaithersburg, Md., is using $100,000 toward expanding its "Smart Snacks" program that provides a bag of nutritious, kid-friendly food to more than 1,050 elementary school children each week at 32 schools. In addition, $50,000 will fund a new program, "Fresh Food for Families," which brings local farm produce to families in need.
  • Kaiser Permanente also is funding innovative programs designed to increase participation in government supported food programs, including school meal and food stamp programs, and to bring healthier food to participants in those programs. Examples include:

    • California Food Policy Advocates, which will use $200,000 to provide better access to food for Californians who are experiencing economic difficulty, improve access to food stamps and increase participation in school breakfast and other meal programs.
    • Food Research and Action Center, Washington, D.C., which will use $150,000 to work with anti-hunger advocates in Kaiser Permanente regions to remove barriers such as duplicative office visits, fingerprinting requirements and cumbersome forms that unnecessarily consume the time of overstretched caseworkers and prevent eligible people from receiving food stamp benefits. They will also assist school districts to help eligible families participate in school lunch and school breakfast programs.
    • Coalition to End Hunger, of Denver, will use $80,000 to support state- and county-level changes that increase access to food stamps as well as school breakfast and lunch programs.
    • The California Departments of Public Health and Social Services are using a $200,000 grant to design a Healthy Purchase Pilot Program, which would offer a rebate to food stamp recipients who increase their purchase and consumption of healthy fruits and vegetables.
