Strategies for the Provision of Culturally Relevant Foods

This brief intends to answer the question: “What have food banks and community food programs nationally done to best address providing culturally relevant food?” Though significant efforts have been made to provide more culturally relevant food to communities in need, published and grey literature about actionable strategies to address this issue are scarce. This document encompasses the best practices to approach a community to understand their needs and concerns, as well as some examples of what has been done to address the provision of culturally relevant food.

This project was completed as part of NUTR 596: Nutrition Practice Capstone.
