Food Security Action Resources

The National Nutrition Safety Net: Tools for Community Food Security helps program providers, public officials, anti-hunger advocates, coalitions, and individual volunteers overcome barriers to making the nutrition assistance programs available to all of those eligible in their local communities. This revised edition highlights the important role of faith-based and community organizations in the delivery of food and nutrition assistance programs.

Together We Can! is a handbook that offers step-by-step plans for combating hunger.  It outlines ideas for what volunteers can do, provides action plans for hunger-fighting activities, and identifies resources available to fight hunger in communities everywhere throughout America.

A Guide to Measuring Household Food Security gives those concerned about food insecurity and hunger the tools to assess the extent of these problems in their communities.
