None of us should need a reminder of what we should eat and what foods we should avoid, but we do. It’s so clear how diet and health are related. One of the by-products of the COVID19 pandemic has been another stark reminder of this connection. People who have diet related health issues have suffered much more than those who do not.
One of the main reasons we developed the #GiveHealthy digital food drive platform was to provide choice. The choice to knowingly donate healthy food items – particularly fresh fruits and vegetables.
It is a fact that people struggling with food insecurity also have higher rates of diet related health issues than the rest of the population. This makes it even more important that food banks and pantries are empowered to distribute healthy food. Our platform helps to make that happen.
