Using recommendations from the DC position paper and a health equity approach, our speakers help build your capacity and confidence to apply current evidence when responding to household food insecurity (HFI). Listeners have the opportunity to explore effective actions and practical strategies to address HFI when working with clients, health providers, multi-sector stakeholders or policy and decision makers. Topics include applying a health equity lens to address HFI, tailoring counselling and education for low-income clients, clarifying the dietitian’s role when collaborating with poverty reduction groups or food policy networks, crafting effective messages to share with stakeholders, and responding to popular requests such as diverting food waste to community food programs or food bank drives. This session is relevant to dietitians working in all areas of practice.
