About the Event

Access to nutritious food is considered a key social determinant of health and wellbeing. 

Without nutritious food rich in the vitamins needed for healthy growth and development, people can run the risk of developing chronic illness. Limited access to nutritious foods can also exacerbate issues like how well children are able to focus in school. Access can also be a problem in low-income neighborhoods, sometimes referred to as food deserts, where grocery stores with fresh produce and nutritious options are limited or nonexistent.

The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia hosted a discussion with a panel of experts to learn about food security as a social determinant of health, and what we can do to create a more food-secure world.
