Transcript of Hunger.FOOD.Health Programs
Aimed to determine if there is a parallel between disparities in food access and health care
Led to the CARE Connect
Most Likely to Impact the World in 10 years”
at the FIC Annual Conference in 2012
Results are summarized in this video:
Initiative seeks to improve access to culturally appropriate, health-promoting foods by impacting:
Local Efforts, Global Issue
Strategic Think Tank
Education & Training
Service and Impact
Key Research Initiatives
A rich out-of-class learning environment for future healthcare professionals launched in 2011:
Quadrupled enrollment within one year
Blends interprofessional UG/G
Quality community-based research with underserved populations
Students from Health Sciences, Medical Dietetics, Food Science, Social Work, and more
Led to a national presentation
• Includes local experts from multiple OSU colleges:
o Social Work
o Public Health
o Engineering, Food, Agriculture & Environmental Science
o John Glenn
o Kirwan Institute
• Engage in a diverse partnership with the intent of leading key food mapping initiatives to impact local food security
Food Security Intern Track
As a direct result of our food security initiatives, the College of Social Work at OSU has committed to building an intern track specific to local food security. Our continued conversations and collaborations promise to broaden our scope of practice in food security-related research, interventions, and long-term impact.
PIs: Michelle Kaiser, PhD, MPH, MSW and Tom Gregoire, PhD, MSW
Our team is investigating the need for a highly transdisciplinary cross-listed course to:
• Integrate a "field to fork to future" approach • Follow food from its origin to public policy and beyond
• Create a library:
o Local and national courses
o Best academic and community-based practices related to HFH training for OSU students
• Encourage the next generation of investigators and practitioners focusing on food insecurity

Food Choices and Health Status of Food Insecure Families in Central Ohio
Student Research Teams
“MEETING UNDERSERVED FAMILIES AND HEARING THEIR STORIES IS SOMETHING THAT CAN’T BE TAUGHT IN A CLASSROOM.”—Alex Lewis, Sophomore
“COLLECTING FOOD PANTRY CLIENT SURVEYS HAS ALLOWED ME TO EXPERIENCE FIRSTHAND HOW DATA HAS THE POWER TO HELP ELIMINATE HEALTH DISPARITIES. AS A STUDENT, IT HAS BEEN A CONCRETE WAY TO DIRECTLY CONNECT WITH THOSE I’M TRYING TO SERVE, AND I FEEL THAT I AM MAKING A CONTRIBUTION TO COMBATING LOCAL FOOD INSECURITY AND THE HEALTH ISSUES STEMMING FROM IT.”
—Bridget Wojciak, Senior
“BEING OF SERVICE IN THE COMMUNITY HAS ALLOWED ME TO SEE THAT WHAT I’VE LEARNED IN COLLEGE CAN TOUCH
PEOPLE’S LIVES IN A POSITIVE WAY. HELPING OTHERS IS ABOUT COMBINING MY EDUCATION WITH COMPASSION, INTERPERSONAL SKILLS, CREATIVE THINKING, AND THE ABILITY TO CONCEPTUALIZE THE BIG PICTURE TO FACE
—Amy Alwood, Graduate Student

Team Health Links
• Collaboration with OSUMC, Colleges of Social Work & Public Health and with community partners at MidOhio Foodbank and Columbus Neighborhood Health Centers
• Created to confront issues of hunger and chronic disease in our city’s most impoverished neighborhoods
• Mobilizes students to link food insecure families to healthful, nutritious food and existing social services
• Measures impact and outcomes for providers, students, partners and our food insecure neighbors
PIs: Drs. Diane Habash, Colleen Spees
(with Alice Duncanson)
Our Seasonal "Dish" highlights our goals and progress as well as those of our collaborators and students. The "Dish” also displays food security-related articles and opportunities for funding.
Strategic Think Tank
The Wordle above highlights key words and concepts extracted from the results of our strategic Think Tank at Mid-Ohio Foodbank.
Over 60 stakeholders representing academia, business, community, industry, nonprofits, faith based organizations, community health centers, public health, and national affiliates were in attendance.
Education and Training
Service and Impact
HFH making an impact in the lives of students:
This prezi was compiled by Amy Alwood, Hunger.FOOD.Health Program Manager
In addition, we currently have 6 graduate students
Examined data from over 23,000 adults to assess concordance with current cancer prevention dietary guidelines in the U.S.
Findings add to a growing body of literature indicating that adherence is not merely human choice. Food insecurity appears to be a contributing obstacle.
Efforts have led to 2 national abstracts/posters.
Patterns of Meeting Cancer Prevention Guidelines Among U.S. Adults: Insights into Risk Stratification
Adolescent and Parent Food Activity Patterns as Drivers in Food Choice and Behaviors
USDA AFRI funded grant in collaboration with the University of KY tracking food choices & shopping behaviors among adults and adolescents in order to:
Define the food environment
Develop & examine the food activity space of rural families
Examine utilization, access & availability of the food activity space among adults
Examine associations between food activity space, purchasing behavior, diet quality & clinical measures
FEED: Food, Education, Empowerment and Diabetes
Partnership with Feeding America, MidOhio Foodbank, Central Ohio Diabetes Association, and Columbus Neighborhood Health Center
A 3-year funded grant aimed at improving health outcomes for food insecure individuals living with type 2 diabetes in Central Ohio
Has led to 3 national abstracts/posters and multiple national presentations
Manuscripts and related grants in progress
Healthy Eating and Living Initiative (HEAL)
Developed by Community Development for All People (CD4AP)
Collaboration with CD4AP, Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus Public Health, Mid-Ohio Foodbank, The United Way of Central Ohio
Addresses key issues related to local food security and health
Several of our core team members serve on the HEAL Advisory Committee to assist with grant writing, study design, and outcome measures.
Currently, we have 15 OSU students actively participating in research and service-based learning initiatives at CD4AP.
Garden of Hope
for Cancer Survivors
Focus groups led to the development of our study, Harvesting Health
Will determine if access to the Garden of Hope impacts cancer survivor behaviors related to:
1) Dietary patterns
2) Perceived quality of life
3) Physical activity
4) Online participation in a secure web portal targeting cancer survivors
Student-created Posters for the HEAL Initiative
This study aims to inventory the contents of several central Ohio food pantries to assess their nutrition environments and the variation in foods offered at each pantry.
Create a multidisciplinary health initiative
Provide health assessments, education, referrals and follow-up services for food pantry clients
National Evaluation Research Core (NERC)
"Big Data" Initiative
Large-scale data mining to assess national:
Diet quality and adequacy
Food patterning across numerous strata
Support multiple research hypotheses
