Improving the Nutritional Quality of Food Pantry Donations in Clinton County (INQFPDCC)

The local food environment poses a number of challenges for residents trying to access healthy foods.  Common barriers include the location of our grocery stores, limited selection and pricehealthygiving variations throughout the county.  Due to these barriers, our local food pantries are an important resource for many residents.  However, food pantries often have limited capacity to accept, store and distribute healthier food items. 

Grant Overview

INQFPDCC is a grant program funded by the New York State Health Foundation that is working to improve the nutritional quality of foods in our local food pantries.  The program is connecting with local organizations that coordinate food drives and local food pantries and their clients to increase donation and demand for healthier foods while also increasing each pantry’s ability to manage perishable food items.   

Goals

By December of 2018, INQFPDCC will -

  • Increase the inventory of healthy food choices at local food pantries by encouraging healthy donations from the community;
  • Increase demand for healthier foods among food pantry clients through environmental changes.
