Home-Delivered Food Boxes Reduced Food Insecurity Among Adults, but Not Children


On an episode of On the Evidence, J.B. Wogan, Senior Manager of Strategic Communications, talk about a demonstration using home-delivered boxes packed with fruit, vegetables, and other shelf-stable foods selected by registered dietitians to address food insecurity among children in Chickasaw Nation territory in rural Oklahoma.
