Making Food Systems Part of Your Community Health Needs Assessment

The community health needs assessments (CHNAs) conducted by nonprofit hospitals present an opportunity to identify and address a broad spectrum of factors that impact health and well-being in local communities. The newly released TACKLING HUNGER CHNA Guidance was developed as a practical guide for hospitals to address an important factor in community health: the community food environment. It provides hospitals with links to external stakeholders and user-friendly tools and strategies, and features practical examples of collaborative partnerships between hospitals and food system stakeholders across the country. bit.ly/THCHNA
