The Impact of Rising Food Prices and Inflation on Food Insecurity

Advancing Food and Racial Justice
For generations, systemic inequities and racial injustice have led to disproportionate rates of poverty and food insecurity among communities of color. The COVID-19 pandemic has only worsened those disparities. Food and racial justice cannot be addressed as separate issues. As we work toward both short-term recovery and long-term resilience, our panelists discussed opportunities to advance food access equity in 2021. Learn how you can support efforts to reduce food insecurity and advance racial equity.
The Importance of Child Nutrition Programs
The Greater Chicago Food Depository kicked off 2022 Hunger Action Month by discussing the prevalence and impact of child hunger, and the different upcoming policy opportunities to better connect Illinois children with the nutrition they need. Topics included the current state of child hunger in Illinois, an overview of child nutrition programs, key priorities for upcoming legislative opportunities, and what advocates can do to ensure that child nutrition programs get the support they need.
