Aligning Food Security Interventions with Better Nutrition in North America

Food security is closely linked to poverty, but in North America the link between nutritional indicators and food security is not strong.  Programs to improve food security need to be sensitive to societal needs and, where possible, take good nutrition into account to reduce the burden of chronic disease.  This paper was presented at the ISGP Signature Series conference “Food Security and Diet-linked Public Health Challenges,”  convened Sept. 20-23, 2015, in Fargo, North Dakota, U.S., in cooperation with North Dakota State University.
