A recent post from the American Heart Association highlighted a May 26th Community Conversation webinar on nutrition security. The American Heart Association brought together experts from Syracuse-Onondaga Food Systems Alliance and Field & Fork Network, along with speakers from Jack and Jill of America, Inc., Syracuse Chapter and sponsor National Grid, to discuss what nutrition security is and how we can improve it in Central New York.

The Nutrition Security Photo Voice Project asked young Central New Yorkers, ranging in age from 5 to 17-year-old, to document what nutrition security and nutrition insecurity mean to them. Participants from the Syracuse chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. took photos and videos of their experiences with nutrition.

 “All over the world people suffer from nutrition insecurity and not a lot of people know it. We need to spread awareness, so people don’t have to go to bed hungry.”
