Food Security Work Group


The Food Security Work Group is comprised of an interdisciplinary team of researchers and leaders committed to raising awareness of and improving nutrition policies and priorities in the hunger safety net through shared research and evaluation. The mission of the Work Group is to build a network of researchers and leaders from academia, non-profit organizations, government, and other funding agencies to increase the amount and quality of research and evaluation in the area of nutrition and obesity prevention in the hunger safety net setting, and to support and facilitate the development and implementation of evidence-informed policies and practices.

Food security exists when all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.
