Food Security

After Karima Rose from The Food Trust (TFT) gave an excellent presentation at the 2014 NCAF Ideas and Innovations Conference, many of you had great ideas about how to improve food security in your countries and states.

She discussed how agencies can use different funding sources to improve the availability of low-cost healthy food in their communities. She also shared insights from TFT's school programs, healthy corner stores, and other activities. What steps have you taken to diminishing food insecurity in your region? Have you worked towards engage and other community members in your food programs?

Health Coaching

NCAF is exploring new ways to provide Community Action clients with comprehensive services to get a hand-up out of poverty. Health coaching is a great way to help clients stay healthy so that our services can be more effectively rendered.

One of our agencies, the Economic Opportunity Council of Suffolk, has started incorporating health coaching into its services. We're looking to learn from EOC-Suffolk and other agencies who use health coaching. NCAF is hoping to expand health coaching to agencies nationwide.
