FNS works with State Agencies to provide food assistance and nutrition education to low-income families. Despite efforts to reach those in need, low-income Latino households remain underserved in accessing federal nutrition programs. Latinos also experience higher rates of food insecurity and obesity, which can be combated with access to nutrition programs and good nutrition education.
We need your help to make sure that the Latino community has access to nutrition assistance programs, so that eligible people can make use of them in times of need. The resources on this website include materials in both English and Spanish that should help enable organizations to offer food and nutrition education - as well as information about nutrition assistance programs - to those they serve. We hope you will use these tools to help us meet the nutrition needs of our nation's diverse Latino community.
A Summer Food Service Program webcast all in Spanish with information how organizations can start the program in their communities.
This e-tool in Spanish is made for faith-based and community leaders to learn about various ways in which they can partner with USDA to ensure that Latinos have access to nutrition programs. The toolkit is a .PDF file that navigates like a website with helpful links, best practices, stories, and even videos of personal testimony. Download and share! Or click here to watch the webcast explaining how to use the La Mesa Completa Toolkit.
